Riser blocks for a JET 1014 Mini-Lathe

Hello everyone,
I just bought a JET 1014I on eBay and was planning to have riser blocks made for it.
I imagine that belt length will determine riser height, so what is the longest 3 groove belt that I can get for the JET1014?
Is it only the next size up, the one that fits the JET1220?
I'd like to make my lathe have a 14" swing over bed, although 15" or 16" would be nice just to have the extra clearance.

Welcome.......hope you stick around.Pretty good turning crowd here.

Why not come up with a simple belt adj arm,bracket,whatever.....then you can use easily obtained belts from auto store?BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
