That will work. it will just take forever.

Hole saw style is a lot quicker, your removing a lot less material for the same hole.

you could use a step bit too, these things are handy to have around. They dont last real long drilling metal though if you have several holes to drill.

I happen to also own a HF drill press, had it for over 10 years the damn thing wont die!
