In theory very correct, however there is always some lateral movement in 
the spring loaded pin which means the pin is not always in the centre, 
which makes it a bit complicated to align. It is always a bit "hit and 
miss". It is why the receptor has a conical shape.

Using this method is a very good way to start, but final small 
corrections may be needed.
