Gilliam made kits for a number of tools—table saws, band saws (18” and 12”), drum sander, and I think a shaper. Maybe some others, too. The components. besides bearings and knobs, were usually cast aluminum, and you provided the wood/plywood to make the box. I built the 18” bandsaw. It actually wasn’t a bad saw, but it was very light duty, as the wood didn’t have the rigidity to prevent flexing of the frame.

I have heard the company still may exist, but has no web presence that I’m aware of.
