Help needed: Drill with a drillbit size up to 4mm

Greetings heretics!

I've found myself in a bit of a pickle - I'm hoping one of you have a link or knowledge that I just can't find.

Now, I have a hobby drill that supports up to 3 mm drillbits, for those magnetizing jobs. However, I find that certain things (Such as wingson a dragon) requires a magnet that is 4mm in size. The problem is that I can't seem to find a hobby drill that supports higher than 3 mm. Ìt's a pain doing it by hand and it often makes the job very unprecise if I'm not really careful.

Am I missing something or is it simply impossible to find one which supports higher than 3 mm in drillbit sizes?

I'm currently using the dremel with shaft attachment that Wookiepelt linked. I find that if I hand drill the pilot hole and then switch to the dremel with the flexible shaft for the larger bit, works wonders. I've got a dremel that I can adjust the RPM's on and have found that a lower RPM works the best. The higher RPM's wants to eat through the model (put a bit straight through an arm and into my finger, hurts like a bitch and then you have to pull the still spinning drill bit out!).
