Useing old scalpel blades to get the enamel off your winding wire

Put a fine cutoff wheel in your dremel, and grind fine notches in the blunt side of your old scalpel blade. When grinding tilt the blade a bit so the grount surface is less than 90deg in relation the side of the blade.

When useing it for scraping, place notch over wire to be scraped,tilt blade slightly to the right and pull wire through with the left hand. It is good to burn the enamel with a match or a little gas torch before useing this methode.

I place the end of the wire for scraping on the edge of the workbench if the wire is already wound on the stator, so the wire gets forced through that littel notch and cleans up very nicely.

This is an awful lot of writing for such a simple action. But a good solder joint is most important for the performance of you motor.
