You can get a cheap torch at Home Depot for $20. Have you tried spraying a lubricant and letting it set overnight? One of my friends is a boat mechanic so a lot of stuff he works on is rusty and impossible to loosen. A trick he showed me once is to slightly tighten a frozen bolt before trying to loosen it. Doesn’t seem like it would make any sense but I have seen it work on otherwise stuck bolts.
