@Simonb, I heard on Monday that whatever was left was packed up and deposited with Bob's widow. I can imagine she was overwhelmed.

Alan Martin cleaned bobs desk. It stayed pretty the same for about 6 months after he passed away. Some of his stuff was packed up.

One thing I like about Jim Williams is that if anyone tells me my workbench is a mess, I can tell them I'm in good company! It is right that it has become a shrine of sorts. I wonder what happened to Bob Pease's bench? Brian....???
