Made by Sheng Tsai. 14” saw, 1/2HP 115V Sold by dozens of companies. Standard Taiwan saw.

Loosen the top wheel as much as possible, wrap a string around both wheel and mark where they meet.
Take the string of, measure it, and waa-laa…. you have the blade size.

Bruce is right. I have had a couple and they were all 93 1/2”. I also owned one that was a 92”. I could never get the standard blades to tighten.
