The boreing head would apply to boreing a hole through a plate. For a round shaft the piece would be turned in a lathe and a boreing bar would be mounted to the cross slide. For your HF mill I would not go larger than a 2 inch boreing head. Smaller is better in this case because you can run the smaller heads faster. Check with MSC and ENCO and see what they have to offer.
