RE: Does anyone have an HP-46 printer for parts?
One point you might consider is the model number inside the HP-46.

It is a Shinshu Seiki (Epson) model EP-102 (or just model 102). Various calculator manufacturers used this printer; of couse the drum would have a different character set, but that won't make any difference.

A follow-on printer was the model EP-104 in later model calculators (esp. Canon). Many of the parts are interchangeable.

I have various calculators and have both printers, but am not in a place to determine if the print hammers are the same. By simply lifting the covers they sure to look identical.

Before recent postings mentioned in the previous reply about constructing your own gear I almost purchased a calc from TAS which had the same printer model.

Search the Internet for the EP-102 and EP-104 to find other calcs using those models. Specifically (if you read German) you might consider:

http://www.schlepptops.de/wiki/index.php..._Model_104

Reading German isn't necessary as the needed info is readily interpretable at the bottom of the page. (I used Google translate) Both pages list various calculator models which use the same printer.
