Unfortunately (or not) magnet wire has not been enameled for many years,
all gud wire is coated with a formaldehyde based resin. I know of no
remover that will take it off quickly.
Why remove it? The wire will last longer with the coating and
the coating doesn't alter it's usefulness, not like 2 inches of dirt.
Scrape the coating off carefully where it will go under the
(adding a bit if anti-Ox compound might help in the long run)
