How do you remove the plastic off of the wire??????HELPPPP
 
Im soldering an xbox, and i am using 30 gauge insulated wire. How do you remove the plastic off to expose the wire(strip it)? Do you put the solder iron on the plastic? PLEASE HELP SO I CAN GET DONE FAST HERE!!!!

THANKS

Put the tip of the wire on the iron itself not on the tip.. This will melt of the plastic and you'll have your wire stripped.

A Bic lighter on the insulation works well also, personally i use a $6.00 wire stripper from rat shack....

or use a sharp knife, gently score the insulation and pull it off in a fashion linear to the wire..

Sharp knife isn't a good idea for the inexperienced simply because even a small nick in the wire will cause it to break when flexed, heat or a stripper is much more reliable...
