H.B. Rouse Table Saw - Need Arbor Assembly

Hi Briarpress,

I rescued what appears to be an H.B. Rouse printer’s saw, based on the logo on the material handling accessories that came with the saw. There is no other identification on the saw housing or motor enclosed in its base. I acquired this in Columbus Ohio and I would like to get it working. If this is a Rouse item, it predates information collected by Dr. MacMillan, whose website https://www.circuitousroot.com is proof positive that information is in fact preserved inside of a black hole.

Everything is in great shape except the arbor spindle has been bent somehow. I cannot get the pulley off to inspect it, but appears to be bent to an extent that I will need to replace the entire arbor assembly, or try more devious means of getting the axle out of its housing to see if I can have one machined.

If I’ve not identified it correctly I would appreciate a note.
