Extra-long Bits in Small Sizes

Are there extra long bits in small sizes? I need a way to drill tiny holes less than one sixteenth but more than two inches long.

Tim Inman: Simple! Use a piece of drill rod in the size you need for your hole and grind a spear point on it. Drill rod is very commonly available from machine shop suppliers. Grind an old-fashioned spear point on the end and put it in an electric drill. Ancient woodworkers always used spear points. I use one that is about 16 inches long to drill sneaky little holes in furniture joints when I need to inject steam into them through a needle I use, to get the joints apart.
