Valve guides are they worn

Would like to know if i need to replace the valve guides? there is no wear on the valve stems visually or measured, but the is ever so slight movement in the valves when i fit them loosely...

Also i put a couple of the valves in a pillar drill and found that there is a slight wobble right at the bottom i mean maybe 0.5mm if that does this need replacing?

I wouldn't bother with the guides if they are not damaged. I would replace the valves though.
