thanks guys...
a big A+ to jenkins.com where i bought my nails
brackets, tools and even gloves!
supplies come in 2 days usually with standard ups ground.
btw, buying the nails from joe was less expensive than buying them from my local place, even with the shipping!
and thanks for keeping this forum website running, joe, it is a valuable resource for info, especially with the search function.

looks like you are having fun anyway! One thing that might help you would be to lay a pallet down on the roof over the slate after you have applied it. It will give you something to walk up on to get to the next level, and you can lay the slates on it to hold them while you are applying it. It will also spread out your weight when you have to move around and keep from breaking the applied slates.

Looks good!

Virtual headlap - that is, a bib flashing to cover the area that the headlap would/should have.. Just saying a piece of flashing would help.

Even with random application, you still have to offset the slates at least 3 inches so it doesn't make any difference!

i have it figured out.
you are only notching a 1 inch strip down the side of the slate.
as long as your sidelap (underlying nail) is 3 inches to the side, you are ok. probably a bit trickier with randoms i suppose.

Slide a piece of flashing over that so it covers the guard down to thye exposure line and is up under the overlying slates a few inches, then you get the headlap back.

That is one way to do it; but have you ever just used a snow guard with a longer leg and just fastened them farther up the roof? The Zaleski guards hook to the top of the slate and can be inserted after the slate is on with a special tool.

is sidelap the only issue to be concerned about?
as long as the slate below the notch has the nail at least 3 inches away from the notch?...that seems like it is doable, but you are clearing loosing headlap....if you look at the second picture.

i have never thought about it before, but if you install snow guards according to the manufactures guidelines with the notch in the slate to accept the strap aren't you essentially creating a reduced headlap??
I am a little stumped.
