Have not been able to find anything that small in Centrotec or Centrotec compatible. Snappy goes down to 1/8" in a drill bit and 3/32" in a countersink version.

You could modify a bit like this...

I know Paul Marcel had a video on his YT channel on using a file to modify a standard hex bit to fit centrotec.
