There are two choices when it comes to separating the lead cable sheathing from the internal copper wires. You can cut the lead off (I used a hatchet), or melt the lead off. If you melt the lead, the insulation on the copper wires will burn and smoke, but the lead will separate and the copper can be lifted out of the smelting container.
