We used to call that, actually a welding torch, a flame wrench. Useful now and then for stubborn parts such as removing frozen on wheel bearing races, etc. It's how I met one of my best buddies decades ago, when he had a wheel bearing race from his 64 Giulia Spider on his work desk. I asked, saying that looks like an overheated wheel bearing race, said it was from his DD Alfa, and we have been friends ever since, since I was driving my DD Giulia Sprint GT at the time.
Isn't it fun installing nice new clean parts?
