A center punch is used to mark the center of a point. It is usually used to mark the center of a hole when drilling holes.
A drill bit has the tendency to ‘wander’ if it does not start in a recess. A center punch forms a large enough dimple to ‘guide’ the tip of the drill bit.
When drilling larger holes and the web of the drill is wider than the indentation produced by a center punch, the drilling of a pilot hole is usually needed.
