Bernzomatic type torches have an available attachment which spreads the flame and provides an edge for scraping. However, if you have a lot to do, I would not use those small tanks, unless you have a way to refill them.

Paint-scrapper made by Sandvic (carbon blade; also made by others). Works better the more paint and the older its is. Not really cheap, but worth every penny.

Decide you want the paint to stay on, it will fall offinside of a week.

Seriously, I'd just use a torch and something to scrape it off. Do this in a well ventilated area, some of that stuff really smells like something you shouldn't breath.

I picked up a heat gun (1,000°F air) from Harbor Fright for under $20 and it melts paint like a hot knife in butter. Recommended!

It works really well for heating bearings too.
