Vise Mounts On Pickup Bumper
I recently read a story in FARM SHOW about a portable bench vise that attached at hitch level to a pickup bumper. The operator had to lean over to use it. It prompted me to put together a portable bench vise that I can use while standing upright, which is much handier to use, says Mike Peters, Harmony, Minn.
  The portable vise consists of an L-shaped length of square tubing with a round flat steel plate on top. The plate has holes in it to bolt on the vise. By pulling a pin from the receiver hitch, Peters can quickly move the vise to another vehicle. It can be stored behind the pickup seat or in a toolbox.
   I already had the vise, which was originally designed to rotate on a round metal base, says Peters. I had a local welding shop put the square tubing and round plate together. Then I painted the tubing and vise yellow so that other motorists will see it whenever the pickup is parked.
