All of us have found that every new tool you buy becomes "How did I ever live without this thing !", and a torch set ranks right up there at the top. So many things you can do, like heating , bending, cutting, etc.

It does take a little initial outlay of money for the torches, tanks, having them filled, etc, but the gas lasts a long time, and then you own the whole deal. Call around in your area because a lot of welding equipment places will have different deals on the tanks, which become a big part of the purchase.

We started out with smaller tanks, and kept trading up to the biggest size, over the years. Most places will take your small ones in trade, and you simply pay the difference in cost between the two sizes, and also for the larger quantity of gas.

I rent high pressure tanks. Not sure if they are available in the US. The are as the size of medium tanks and contain as much gas as the biggest tanks. Big advantage is they come with build in pressure regulators so no need to invest in those . Quick releases, hoses and a torch...
