How do i save this hub?

I have one of those with a bent flange as well. As hard as they are to come by. I WILL fix it one way or another. My one thought so far is to take two boards, cut two notches in the edges of both of them, clamp the hub between the two boards with the hub shell in the middle then nail other boards to the top and bottom to hold everything together and go at it with a mallet.

This is how I did it. Although the wrenches flats were taped off-the placement of tool is centered over the "cutout. The spokes are preventing the wrench from covering cutout completely. GL.

Yep, with a bare hub, a vice and a couple crescent wrenches would have that flange straight in no time.
