I've decided on 1.5hp, single phase. But there's another critical decision: what color?

what colors suggest LEVER OF DOOM?

mmm...

i'd probably go with safety yellow for the lever... possibly with SOLAS tape along the edge, or lettering in black saying LEVEL OF DOOM

the body? well, either whatever doesn't show dirt as much, or ... something else?

go crazy? paint it with duracoat?

probably something like orange though. or RED. LIME?

hmm, looks like a (hot?) rolling mill to me.
paint it to look like hell and add the legend
"Abandon thickness all ye who enter"
