    Vice Mounted on Trailer

    Any suggestions on how to mount a vice on my trailer, but not permanently?

    If you have a picture of your vice mounted on your trailer please post them. I'm looking for ideas on how to do mine.

    Thanks.

    I seen this done before.

    It is a trailer spare tire bracket. Mount it horizontal and drill holes for the vice's mounting base.
    It can be bought at Northern Tool and Harborfreight.
    You may have to get a larger peice of plate steel under it depending on how big the base of the vice is.

    Whats it being used for? impeller removal?


    just a thought...


    I'm sure there are other methods....

    Yes. Mainly for impeller removal, but will use it for anything else I might need it for. I don't have a garage so any wrenching I do is from the back of my truck.

    I remember seeing a picture of one that you can take off for storage, but haven't been able to find it.

    I've seen the vices mounted on a receiver hitch. Then they welded the female part of the hitch onto the trailer. Whenever they needed a vice, then they install it into the reciever, and do the prop removal, or whatever.

    Jarrett has a pretty easy design. He uses two vises. One he clamps to the trailer with the base mount facing upward. He connects the base mount of the second to the base mount of the first and voila, an easily removable trailer vise.

    I just did this two weeks ago I used a piece of 1/2" thick x 6" wide x 12" long aluminum plate from Mcmaster and I cut off two 1" strips and used for the clamps drilled and tapped for the vice and mounted it. I can move this or remove this with ease.

    Yeah just go buy two vices of the same make, so they have the same mounting bolt patterns. Then get the biggest nuts and bolts that fit that pattern and attach them like Frank said above, mounting plate to mounting plate. That way you can quickly install or take them off and use them elsewhere when you are not at the ramp swapping/bending props. Keeps people from stealing them off your trailer as well. PLus I'm not smart or skilled enough to know how to fabricate a mounting plate
