Test with LPKF EasyContac rivets for Via's

I wanted to try out the LPKF EasyContac, so i used a buspirate. I had to enlarge the via holes to 31mil and move a couple around, some of them are pretty close to overlapping but most fit. i should have resized the via pads a bit more.

Here is a pic of a few of them in place. I found that you should put the rivets in on the opposite of any components you might be under, or from the side with the most space around them as the side you punch down ends up with a smaller footprint.

I used a needle to insert each, i did think about stringing them on a piece of wire and doing them one at a time.
