Anyway, I tend to hit the wire with a lighter or heat gun then gently sand with 500 grit.
Not sure if there is room with what's left sticking out, though.
That's ok for thick single strand wire (or maybe up to 4 strands or so) but for the very fine filament multi strand windings on most factory wound motors I've never had much luck. Even if you think you have a good joint there are likely to be some of the stands not soldered and so not carrying any current.
