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.

Forboard to board work I use RG316 same thing in Teflon and far less pain to solderin.Its not as cheap but more reusable even as scraps. Ham FLEAS are the best betfor short lengths and bits cheap.Allison/KB1GMX
