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.

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....

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.
