IDC10 breakout board

This is an adapter board that makes it easy to for an IDC10 socket to be plugged into a breadboard.

The two 5-pin headers either side of the IDC10 box are inserted in to the board first and as if they were going to be component-side headers. Then the board is turned upside-down on a hard surface and hammered through a strip of wood until the pins have been pushed all the way through to the solder side, leaving the pins flush with their plastic housing on the component side.

The PCB is in gEDA format.
