I was looking for additional blades for the fore mentioned saw and the SPECs say it uses a 99.75” blade???

I was looking for better blades for this saw but ca not find anything near 99.75

Am i missing something?

That’s not a very common size. The only saws I know that use it are the Craftsman, Rikon and Steel City that are all the same saw, just with different paint schemes.

If you want better blades, there are several companies that will make good quality blades of whatever length you need and it doesn’t really cost any more than the pre-fabbed blades. You just might have a short wait time as they make and ship them.

Edit: Timberwolf has 99-3/4 available. Olson has several choices, as well, and will make them in other configurations as a special order.

This is just one example of a place where you get them in any size.

Just search for “bandsaw blades”. There are several places that make custom blades. I’ve purchased 99 3/4” blades from http://www.probandsawworks.com/ .
