Aligning a Fork. Who's done it?

https://sheldonbrown.com/brandt/align-fork.html

My Motobecane Grand Jubile pulls to the left when riding no handed. It does this with different wheels and wheels reversed etc. The headset is fine. It passes the flop test etc. I believe my fork(s) is a good candidate for the Jobst Brandt treatment because the rim is about 3mm closer to the left fork blade. So, when I adjust each blade 3mm to the side that I need to lean (right), in order to ride straight, the wheel will be centered?

Have you done it? Did it work?

thanks
