I am still in the stone age on this one.  I use an Xacto #1 handle with a fresh #11 blade, and work on a hard, smooth, and clean surface like a piece of plate glass.  Good lighting and a magnifier help.

I have to admit I rarely use RG174 and when I do I use crimped connectors.  For 
board to board work I use RG316 same thing in Teflon and far less pain to solder 

Its not as cheap but more reusable even as scraps.   Ham FLEAS are the best bet
for short lengths and bits cheap.
