    Its a drill bit, but it has a smaller dia. non fluted part on the tip that guides it through a smaller hole. So you have say an 1/8" hole now and want it to be 1/4", sure you could just slap it up on the press and let a standard 1/4" bit "find" its way through, but this deflects around and the location is lost. The ones Im thinking of have that 1/8" plug/guide so it doesnt wonder off of center.

    What are they called? I need to look into finding some.
    Thanks.

    Look for a piloted drill, a core drill, piloted reamer, or you can use a uni-bit if it is thin material.

    I hit the center with a punch. But for thin stuff the step drill bits work.

    I believe what you are looking for is called a counterbore drill
