Don't thow things away pack them and store until things have calmed a little and can be dealt with a clearer head.
Condolences TM - been there recently myself and it does take a while Agree with those who've said take some time before deciding what to do - there may be things you'll want to pass down the line in later years.

So sorry to hear of you loss toyota man, I lost my own dad nearly four years ago now and it is such a blow.
You will hear people telling you from time to time as to how time will heal.... it doesn't really but it DOES get a little bit easier as you reflect on all your good times with your dad.
As for the different bits of equipment ? It's a good idea if you can... to have them stored somewhere wherby at a later date when your head and thinking become more the 'norm' and then decide as to what to do with it all. Your head and your family's thinking may be a tad 'off' at this shock-time.... so rather than make sopme decisions at this sad, sad time , maybe best to do that at a later date.
So sorry for your good self and all of your family and friends..... a death in the family is such a blow and so sad.Mega sympathy and good thoughts are sent your way toyota man and I hope that you don't feel so bad soonish, sorry to hear of your loss. :(

Sad news indeed. Best wishes mate.
Hang on to your brothers/family, they'll be the best people to get you through.
SIncere condolences - never a nice time. I've had to clear stuff a few times now and it is very difficult. What I did in the end was retain my own keepsakes hence making them my memories of whoever it was and then found new homes for the other stuff. I'm not preaching at all, each to their own, but I'd rather another person got pleasure from whatever the things were rather than keeping them for keeping sake and storing in the loft/garage, never to be used again.
On the lathe front, my Father in Law used to build small gauge steam trains and had all the gear. He decided to get rid of the lathe a couple of years ago as he'd not used it for donkeys years. He advertised it in an engineering magazine (sorry can't remember which one and he passed away last year so can't ask him). He was swamped with calls and ended up getting about 4K for it (buyer collect obviously!)
... There is a workshop with a couple of lathes a milling machine etc Not sure what to do with them ...
Start a wee web-based business producing cool scale-models of Lancasters and 0-gauge locos - you already have the templates...
Sorry to hear your news toyota man, I hope you have lots of happy memories of your dad when sorting through his stuff.
