If it doesn't have anything like a riser block it should use a 93 1/2" blade.

Blade size is 93.5 if no riser block, otherwise 105". I have the same model. Depending on your use, a riser block is a great mod for this saw. A guy on eBay sells them. Kind of pricey but worth it. Don't buy it from RenovoParts.com. Their riser kit was so-so and customer service is lacking. Yes, it's cheaper but I had to redrill the block to make it fit. Also the guide bar was not the right size. Had to buy the correct bar elsewhere for $65. Final price was in the neighborhood of the eBay price.

Looks like mine does not have the riser block.
I might could have my son make me one on his 3d printer if I had exact measuments. what do you think?

Not unless you enjoy shrapnel in your face, plastic wouldn't be strong enough. It would give, the saw arm would collapse, and someone would eng up in the hospital. 3d printers are awesome for a lot of things, but not this, not unless you have an sls printer

I need cheaper hobby

Fabricating the riser block is the hard part. Riser needs to be steel/cast iron due to the load once you put tension on the blade. The kit consists of the riser block, a guard (rear), a new guide post, (mine has a 15/16" but some have a 7/8"), an extended blade guard (front), and a new 105" blade. Heard some folks are using a Grizzly riser with their Deltas'. Kit is similar other than the alignment pins don't match. Some woodworkers just remove them and alignment the unit themselves. You could also just reposition the pins. If I was to do it over, I would go the Grizzly route. A company down in Florida is very helpful if you need info, call them at 904-642-2802.
