    This is what I was going for. I was mainly expanding off Halco's comment earlier.

    Concentricity is an absolute term, runout is a relative term.

    This is technically incorrect. Concentric is a geometric term, not a machining term. "Cone Centric" means circles made by slicing a cone with planes perpendicular to a line running through the focus, thus making circles with the same focus, but differing diameters.

    A hexagon cannot be a cone, only a six sided pyramid, so therefore cannot be concentric.
