Vise on the Hitch (Ralph A. Mark, Jr.)

Vise on the Hitch (Editor's Choice):

Charles Beers, Dixon, Missouri, carries his shop vise with him to the field. To do so, he welded two pieces of square tube steel together on a 45-degree angle. One end of the tubing fits into the hitch receiver. There, Beers drilled a horizontal hole through the tubing to match the holes in the receiver. A pin fits through the holes to secure the assembly to his truck. Beers welded a steel plate to the other end of the tube steel. He cut holes into the plate matching the mounting holes on the vise and bolted the vise to the steel plate.
