First Ive got to say that this NOT an original idea. I first borrowed this (more like an improved version of this) from Vicroamer to measure the OPV pressure a few months back. Havent thought about it anymore until the OPV thread from seedlings came and it got me thinking again. Below are everything you need to make your own PF gauge:

1. PF with spouts removed

2. Spanners - adjustable will do

3. Pressure gauge - rated to 1600 kPA, 1/8" (or 6ml) BSP Thread

4. Adapters to make the 1/8" fit onto the PF thread

5. Plumbers tape

I got the pressure gauge and adapters from Reece plumbing for a total cost of $21.50, $16 for the gaug and the rest for the 2 adapters. Plumbers tape 80 cents from Bunnings. If you bring your PF gauge along, the guys at Reece will be able to get the correct adapters which takes out the guesswork of what size and thread type to ask for.
