Rear wheel removal

Restoring my car and struggling to get the rear wheels off. I believe they may of been on for 50 years and not removed.
I think it is a cone end on the driveshaft, have made a puller that spreads across 3 wooden spokes on two sides of the wheel and a bar that connects across the driveshaft, put a lot of load on it and cant remove the wheel, I have heated the hub at the same time but its not moving.
Any ideas will be appreciated.

May need to get a puller made that screws onto the wheel hub and has a reaction bolt through the centre to the driveshaft.

Any ideas or a puller to buy/hire will be greatly appreciated.
