Very true... a good cut setting will leave an almost continuous shaving when the cut speed and depth is in the correct range, same goes for drilling thru steel or aluminum, when the rpm and cut pressure is just right it'll produce a continuous single shaving. You can control this if you don't like long shavings by going in and stopping momentarily to break off the shaving so it's not excessively long and in the way of the work or slinging around and possibly cutting you.
