If you are on 2' centers then you will have to put a pretty good lap to get to where the felt doesn't sag due to non- supportYou could also attach a stop to your rafter tails then let the sheets ride against it as you line them up and screw them. Screw a temporary extension onto the rafter tails for the stop if necessary.

I have to admit your idea about punching is great for you pros but, I have to admit that I didn't worry a whole lot aboutkeeping my purlins as straight or as evenly spaced as you guys. So, it was much easier to screw each sheet as I wentas the purlins would have been missed otherwise.Also GW, it's difficult to tell from the photo but, I can't see the diagonal bracing on your trusses. Please check out a good framingbook on how to install 2X4 bracing inside the scissor trusses. That is where you really get your strength. Wish I could recall the name ofthe book I got that from. It's easy to do and only takes about twice the length of 2X4's as the length of your roof.Okie Bob
