    Too hot? How about a lot of pollution? I am not a big one to rag on the environment, but burning off insulation is just too much and not at all necessary. Strip it, YES!

    Dont get your panties in a wad he he.Im not that ambitious to cause any measurable amount of pollution.Just exaggerating to make a point.My little fire would barely cook a rabbit.Still I do like the stripper and will make one soon.
