Cheap source for 0.6mm via rivets

(1/2) > >>

dorkshoei:
Does anyone know of an inexpensive source for 0.6mm inside-diameter (ID) pcb via rivets?    AliExpress doesn't seem to go below 0.9mm (where you can get 1000 for <$4).

CircuitMedic has them: https://www.circuitmedic.com/parts/eyelets.html  (0.02" ~ 0.5mm)

I used to use them, then switched to a small drill and 24 awg bare wire, which is retained by friction.  Solder and cut close.  Easier, quicker, and cheaper.

Sure but "$34.95 Pkg/25" isn't what I'd call cheap -- https://www.circuitmedic.com/parts/115-7206-25.html

The wire is a good idea.

I bought these off AliExpress but as I said, 0.9mm seems the smallest sold on the site (multiple sellers)

Hmmn. I should go remeasure them as I assumed 0.9 was the ID but now I look closer maybe it's 0.7.
