You may find that it works for you, but I really, really
, don't recommend it. In my (direct and bitter) experience it just wrecks the stud and doesn't free the drum off!
The method that I have had most success with is jacking the offending wheel then tapping the back of the drum. If that fails, take the wheel off and tap the front of the drum itself. It sounds like a lot of work, but so long as you have a jack and a wheelbrace to hand it won't take more than a few minutes.
