DIY guides (maybe)

Has anyone tried to make their own guides? Thinking of trying to make some out of surgical grade titanium 16 GA and 18 GA. 16 GA is .0508” and 18 GA is .0403”. There is a you-tube vid of a guy using a block used in the vaping industry to make coils to make his own guides. This will be for a casting rod bass fishing. Thanks in advance.

Doubtful you'd be any better off than just buying some good ones, but this is a custom craft so if you were successful and liked your final product, it'd be just one more aspect of the hobby/craft for you to be involved in.
