Needs list:
Beer
Band aids
Ear plugs
WD-40 or equvilent
hammer
Big hammer
A seriuos MF hamma
Pry bar selection
start by soaking and having a beer. Tap all around continuously. As frustration sets in, step up to larger hammer.
Ooops, ice chest fullof ice and water. Just in case you hit and don't break the skin

Talking

I'll second that, soak it well have a beer gently tap on outer rim of drum as it faces you that should free it up. If not get a big mother lump hammer & smack seven bales of ***** out of it!
go the lighter route first it would be best done with no damage, but brute force is the only real answer i'm afraid. good luck.

this is such a fun job!!!! ok as above make sure you back off the adjusters,then use a penetrating oil to spray the face of the drum at the studs to try and loosen them a little.
let it sit for a while(have a few frosties)
then take a hammer and firmly tap all around the edge of the drum. make sure you do it evenly or it will jam go slow and good luck
