As you can see on the box the outlet thread is 1/8 NPT female.A USA thread.
Tesuco have a 1/4 bspp thread so the short answer is no.
Low pressure gauges can be bought in australia for $16.Just for get where I got mine but was in Brisbane so if you google arond you should get one in your area.Make sure you use a non return valve. [This time]???????

Bugger..... doesnt look like there is an adaptor that will work(all googled out with no luck) and the one from the ol' US of A is already on the way. Will try at Ingleburn for the right one, they may have an adaptor?

Thanks for the info..

The other point you might want to bear in mind, the output from the reg is 350-400 kPa Maximum.
If you fit a gauge with a lower rating and accidently turn the reg too high you will blow the gauge.
They have a very fragile hollow coil in them that if subjected to over pressure will I assure you never be the same again.
