removing a roller bearing

Question

So, I don't know how to get this bearing out. All the others (ball bearings) came out with some gently taps. This one isn't budging and I don't want to damage it too much before I take it out to have a look. I plan on replacing it, but its really pissing me off. (If you're wondering what the little pieces on the bottom of the case are, they are glass. The lightbulb above my work bench exploded lol)

I think you'll come up a bit short with just a plumper's torch

Its all I have. And I'm not about to spend more money on a torch I'll realistically only use once.
