A movable framework retains an edge guide apparatus preferably in the form of a slanted rotary member or members, for determining a reference position relative to the edge of a previous tier of roofing shingles. The framework has a chute attached thereto for directing shingles into position with a second guide edge attached to the framework to determine the correct stop position of the shingles relative to the rotary guide. A plurality of fastening devices are pivotally attached to the framework in correct spacing and an actuating handle arranged to pivot these fastening devices in tandem into their proper positions relative to a shingle contained within the chute. The basic framework can accommodate a storage rack for shingles to be used and can be wheel-mounted for ease of movement. Further, the apparatus can be easily arranged to be self-contained by including a storage tank for operating pneumatically actuated fastening devices.
