That is a spur center on the spindle… and I believe (but not 100% sure) that it’s threaded on. Hard to tell from the picture. Does the hole in the pulley go all the way through? If so, it may be a taper fit and needs to be banged out with a knockout rod.

IIRC, those machines were sold under several different names. I’d hunt for a manual – maybe an older HF lathe is the same?
