The lip on the end of the puller has to be small - no thicker than the inner race of the bearing, otherwise it just dents the shield. I would think the one you describe would work.

If you can't pull out bearings, you could push them out by sticking a "punch" through one bearing & floating spacer until it rested on the inner race of the opposite bearing, then hammer on the punch to push the opposite bearing out. If you choose the diameter of the punch carefully (say 1/4") it will be able to tilt just enough to reach the inner race but without being able to tilt far enough to damage the shield. Once the first bearing is out, the second one is straightforward.
