I have a shed to take down, the round roof is in poor condition so not going on top too dangerous. The roof is 40year old corrugated iron, held down with shed nails as we call them and rubber washers. The shed nails are 6mm thick.

teleporter and basket available to lift me up to get access to the nails.

Whats the easiest way to cut them.

would the rubber washer be insulating the nail from the sheet i wonder, otherwise would use my lidl plasma cutter with integrated compressor. the rubber washer would prevent me getting an earther i suppose, and the timber is unlikely to be a counductor

Get a telehandler and put a twenty foot metal pole over a pallet fork and just bash the sheets down
