Brake drum removal

Does the proper broach cutter to cut the wheel stud have a square end or tapered?
Anyone have a part number for an off the shelf cutter?

I have had good luck using a 9/16 quality hole saw for removing the bulk of the swaged portion of metal on the brake drum. Studs push out easily after with no enlarging of stud hole in the hub.

Unless you are trying to save the drums for some reason(?), the regular off the shelf flat/square end works just fine. Only cut deep enough to remove the riveted over part of the stud.
