    All the cheap little pressure gauges seem to have a 1/8" BSP male thread.
    I can't find a supplier of adapters so I can connect one to a pipe.
    Any ideas? I could get a BSP tap and make one from a lump of brass
    but there must be someone who makes them.

    They are used in a lot of gas appliances. Try a plumbing or gas fittings
    specialist such as Plumb Centre.

    A copper capillary tube, 2.4mm outside diameter but that's not important.
    It's easy enough to drill a hole and solder it into whatever fitting I can find.

    Halfords had a 1/4" BSP coupler that will do. I'll just have to use the pressure gauge
    from my tyre inflater rather than one of those on my Aldi compressor.
