Options exausted, please help (pics inside)

I was changing wheel bearings on the front left wheel , and inner bearing is seized to spindle ,i tried everything to remove it,upper cage broke and bottom part of bearing is dead seized on the spindle. i tried to knock it out from the side, tried all the lubricants,prior to every attempt torched the fuck out of it,used all kinds of pullers and combinations,,tried to score it with grinder ,and on the picture it shows how far i was able to penetrate.

I used this large bearing separator that catches on the lip of the bearing and wouldn't move.

i put wheel puller on the separator and wouldn't budge

I really need some ideas, i just cant spend that much money for spindle,non of the yards in my surroundings are have it, and on eBay there is only two in very bad condition.

I would like to save spindle if possible.
And when is enough when heating with torch,should it became sizzling red.
