Is burning enamel safe?


I know one of the easiest ways to rid the magnet wire of its enamel is by burning it with a butane-lighter. Does this release any toxic fumes, however? I work with magnet wire a lot, and am, quite frankly, tired of stripping it with an Xacto. I'd most likely be burning it outside, so it wouldn't be that bad, I suppose.

If you're just doing the ends, it will be no more hazardous than soldering.
