Reasonably, and with respect, the question could be asked "Can you 'pork' a porcupine?" Well, you can...but it ain't likely to be pretty and you may get hurt. (Legality may vary by region.)
Seriously though, the question needed to be asked and this is the most reasonable answer to this question I've heard before. Well done!
>As you have stated, axially it it fine especially if a hole is roughed out first with a drill bit. I use as you do in the pedestal drill and in the tailstock chuck regularly. Nice short and too the point video.
Thanks! It is funny as I read your reply two things dawned on me. First I did not mention, as you point out, the importance of drilling a hole first as many end mills do not cut in the center. And second, I thought of another use, putting a small flat on round stock to drill for a set screw for instance. Thanks for the reply!
All the best!
