    In our area, there are many places to rent those portable small oxy-acetylene torch kits. They are small enough to be carried in one hand and provide the same heat as a larger setup only for less time.

    When I bent a few things out of shape I bought a 20T hydraulic press
    from HF. Much cheaper than replacing the distorted parts and a tool
    I was planning to buy anyway.

    Red Wrench is how I have heard it referred too.

    Just a note, you cannot run a rosebud on a small Acetylene tank. The size of the rosebud will determine the size tank that is required to adequately pull the acetylene out of suspension to keep up with the flow.

    Or in short, big rosebud, small tank, bad things happen.

    my father was telling me once how him and a friend had to bend some big I beams once for building a trailer and they got a huge rosebud tip and had to hook together 2 acetylene tanks to get enough gas to use it

    One think I use when I need a lot of heat to bend something is a Lincoln Carbon Arc Torch. It is just a cheap, I think $40 attachment for any ac arc welder. It creates a soft, rather large 6500 degree F flame. wonderful for heating things to bend. No gas required.

    If you are going to use a Lincoln Carbon Arc Torch then you do need to watch the duty cycle of your welder. 10 to 15 minutes of use is about all you should expect to see without overheating the transformer. Further use without resting the welder can cause damage to the windings. Work fast......
