    Stick a 5/8 bolt through it instead of a pin and crank it down. I even do it on my hitch (self locking of course). It eliminates all the banging and slamming around.

    Nice work! Do you find that receivers provide a tight enough fit for you, or do you modify it to make it a snug fit? Most that I have used aren't very precision, there's a bit o' slop in them. Fine for pulling a trailer, but if you're using a tool on it, it could be maddening? Just curious.

    Thats all-right I got a Lowes about two milles from the house and I do believe they have plenty of glossy black spray paint. "I HOPE"

    Nice job, I'd hate to mess the paint up on that nice trailer

    Vice attachment

    Good idea, I've made one that goes in the receiver of my van and made arms to hold the materials while I work. I made several top plates for it so that I can use my vice, bench top drill press, bench grinder, tube bender etc... Makes working on site so much easier. Dave

    started a topic Project Vise

    Project Vise

    I wanted to add a vise to my trailer but be able to move from one side to the other. So I got two 8" recievers and welded one on each side. I cut a piece of diamond plate 9" square - mounted the vise on it - then added 2" square tubing - cut and welded at a 45 deg. angle - so I can easily remove and use on either side of trailer.
