Need help on the name of this thingie

When I was high school, for shop classes, I used to have this wooden stake with a metal needle tip to puncture a hole in a wooden wall so I can easily put the screw in. Anyone know what is this tool called? I am trying to find one in Amazon or Sears.

I believe that's a "glory hole punch".

Is a 'piehole' the same as a 'cakehole'?

Only childish people call it that because they're afraid to use the correct term "car vagina."

Just buy a nail punch, it'll do the same job and you can use it for more things.
