Riser blocks for a JET 1014 Mini-Lathe

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.

When I moved the motor of my Nova Comet from the side of the lathe to the bottom I had to buy a much longer belt. I found the 3 groove belts were hard to find in longer lengths. However you can get 6 groove belts in very long lengths. I just took a razor knife and cut down the middle. Then I had a spare belt. I don't think you'll have trouble finding a belt it must might take some looking. I was lucky in that my local belt and pulley supplier had lots to choose from and was very helpful.

I purchased my belts from this place when I needed one for my Nova.
The one shown is a 23" 3 groove (micro groove). It is my understanding the manufacturer (Gates in this case) make all the belts to length with 120 grooves and they are then slit to the number of grooves needed.
Belts for mine were about $6 and in the store about $20.
I think you can just change the length, 230 for 23" in my case, to what ever length you need and search the site. I believe the micro groove belts are J.
