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.

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.

The description sounds like 113.298240 or 113.299040 (two saws of similar ilk). Sears gave them distinct model numbers, but I can't tell any great differences.
You can look at Sears online parts catalog with a model number, get a parts breakdown with pictures...

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.
