We don't have that many. If it were me, I'd put out the word among the roofing community that any roofers removing an asbestos roof should save the copper pins for you.

ok so they are called disk rivets. I see they sell them in Europe. I wonder if I can trust ordering from over seas.

I got some on Ebay. You may be able to use copper nails turned upside down and snipped off.

I am fixing a portion of an old asbestos roof. The section I am fixing needs about 40 tiles. I have them but does anyone know where I can get the pins that go at the bottom of each tile? Should I just use slate hooks on all of them? I did individual repairs on single tiles using slate hooks. But the back left section of the roof is badly damaged and needs to be fully replaced. The size of the tile is 16inches by 16inches asbestos. hex
