It looks like 202-10 may be the standard bearing number. See:

Have you plugged the Sears parts database to see if they have
replacements in stock?

If they don't, then take what you have to any decent bearing supply
house and they should be able to match them.

Go to a bearing supply house and hand them the bearings. They will hand
back to you a new set identical to what you have now. Bearings are a
universal type of part. Easy to replace. Not so easy to get them out and
replace them sometimes.

You have a 40's vintage saw.

Hoover has been gone for years.

202 is a standard bearing size; however, check with Sears.

When that saw was built, 202 was the most popular size bearing built.

Today, it is the 203.

I had to do this rebuild once and Sears had an update conversion to use the
203 bearings which today are the standard size replacing the 202 from the
late 40's.

SFWIW, there are more 203 bearings made than all the other sizes combined.

Why?

203 is the standard for all fractional HP electric motors, automotive
alternators, automotive transmissions, as well as a host of other
applications.

Have fun.

Default Table saw bearings-Update

If S/R still offers a bearing kit, it will be a modified water pump bearing,
at least that is what they gave me when I did this job.

You get both bearings, and arbor shaft as one ass'y.

Makes life easy.

Default Table saw bearings

well here we go
there does not seem to be a model # on this saw
all it says is do not install more then 3/4 hp motor
seems kinda weird that a 3/4hp on this size of table saw
built like a tank
it has a cast iron top and 2 ext wings that are made from white metal
the wings are solid not web,but do have some ribs in them,it also has a
yellow disk in the front of the saw table top , the fence has 2 (1 on each
end) angle iron syle with a rod at the end of the fence system held to the
angle irion buy a rod with speed nuts on it
i have looked on the internet for a model # but always came up short
any info would be great
thanx again

Default Table saw bearings

Hoover is now NSK. The 202 is the current standard 6202 bearing (metric OD
and metric width), however the number -10 following the bearing number
indicate the ID in sixteenths of an inch, which would translate to 5/8 inch
bore, which is a typical size for Craftsman equipment. They typically used
metal shields on their bearings for grease retention. I would advise getting
the new ones with the rubber seals (usually designated with a 2RS or an LL
after the bearing number), so what you would want to get is a set of 6202-10
LL, or 6202-10 2RS bearings. The difference in price between shielded and
sealed bearings is miniscule for small bearings like this. They do a much
better job of keeping sawdust out of the bearings.

When you install them, make sure you are pressing them on properly. To press
them onto a shaft, press ONLY on the inside race. If installing them into a
housing, press ONLY on the outside race. If you press on the wrong race, you
will damage the bearing and will have to replace it again soon.

If you have to drift the bearing onto the shaft or into the housing, use a
tube of some type that fits closely to the size of the race that you are
drifting. If you use a metal tube, such as a piece of pipe, DO NOT USE A
METAL HAMMER. The bearing races are hardened steel, and you can fracture the
metal. Use a dead blow hammer or piece of wood to drift them on.
