I usually proceed knocking out the bigger clumps with my xacto, using extreme caution around the corners. You don't need to go crazy unless you're shooting for a copper area record... just remove the big clumps and shave down any thick patches and you should be able to fit a decent wind in there.

If you get too anal about scraping, insulation nicks will start to appear in bad places. No worries, as you can repair nicks with black CA. Again, you don't need to get too fussy about the flat areas... pay most of your attention to building up protection over exposed corners because that is where shorts usually happen. Not trying to scare you off, but do get out a magnifying glass to check things over before winding; even a pin point size area of exposed steel on a corner will usually result in a short.
