I see those wrenches at every tractor/engine show I go to.

You can use an old pair of vise grips as tongs by the way. You will have to continually hit the quench bucket with them but in a pinch they will work.

I would buy a pair of tongs, practice hammering and then make whatever you need when your skill is there.
I've got one that was no use to me until now. Thanks.
