Homemade Garand gas plug

I was thinking on how to make my own adjustable gas plug,cheap like I am,and came up with a pretty simple idea I thought I would run by.I didn't search very hard before I just started typing,so if it has been done here already,I apologize and request a link.I thought I could drill and tap a hole in the end of the plug and screw in small allen head screws with small holes drilled into them,several screws with different sized holes to customize the outlet pressure,what do think?would this even work?

Why not use the tappet type gas plug, tap the hole for an allen screw, then use it to push the tappet open until the right amount of gas escape is achieved.

Aside from the challenge of doing it, may I ask, "why bother to make your own"? Commercial ones are available and are inexpensive
