Hi David
I do have a small milling machine and a rotary table, also a direct indexing dividing head , I sometimes use the mill for steel pinions if it’s something I can’t make on the pinion mill ,the method you suggestwould work well for the odd job there is no other way round, I like it ! The problem would be making sure backlash is eliminated before each “index” or slide movement, the big problem for me would be getting muddled up. I’m dyslexic so would struggle badly , it’s one of the reasons I prefer direct indexing over worm and wheel dividing heads,

Your suggested method does shoe the versatility of the mill/jig- borer, I wouldn’t be without it that’s for sure !
Warm regards’
