Yes you are correct. But I think this will be a real time saver for most of what I do.

It appears you aren't concerned with concentricity.

From past experience, I avoid quick and easy setups. Each time usually resulted in a broken end mill, broken or damaged piece, or flying debris. I do dread the 20 minute setup needed for a simple 1 minute cut on a part. But I've learned that taking the extra time during piece mounting/setup results in far less headaches down the road.

Of course if you're machining styrene, the danger decreases by a large margin.
