hit up lowes and pick up the "baby" torch. It uses mapp gas and a red oxygen tank. Its $50 tho

Perhaps just a MAPP tank will do it

Mapp Gas
high flame temperature of 2927 C (5300 F)
Cool! That might do it. What about the leaf? Wont that cause it to warp or melt or something?(besides, I dont have that cash.)
What about heating it then cooling it real fast? A friend of mine suggested that he did that with a steel on steel seizure, but this is different.
