I had a look at these but couldn't find one that had drilled holes that you could solder a wire into/onto - they all seem to be just pads? Or have you seen anything more useful?

I was just going to solder to the pads but I guess you could use an edge connector permanently fixed to the board.

It would also be relatively simple to drill 1mm holes at the ends of each land for mechanical security before soldering.

Since I have PCB making equipment (and plenty of time) I would be happy to help members out if they want an edge connector similar to the one below but with an additional second row of anchor holes for soldering cables or I could change the design to accept screw terminal blocks.
