Then I'd say the right tool isn't even a drill bit!!

Measure the existing hole, and buy a 11/32 couterbore, and a pilot for the 
couterbore that is the same size as the existing hole, and have at it!  Much 
less grabbing, lower HP requirements and the like, plus the drill won't walk 
all over the place
