If you are not into CNC, this article may make no sense to you at all. Actually, if you are into CNC, it still might not make much sense
This article explains how to take the feed rate for a cutter and translate it into the correct RPM for rotating an A axis plus the correct X axis feed rate that gets you the desired radial depth of cut.

Yes, it makes sense based on your conceptual analysis by first considering cutting around the A-axis even if the tool was stationary in the X-axis. Also makes sense looking at the problem from the vector sum and preventing the milling cutter from cutting a helix (although this will be an ideal application for your setup).
Thank you for the article, Paul
