Just a low pressure gauge such as a low-side 0-30 psi acetylene gauge robbed from a regulator, then just 'T' off with 1/4" fittings and a couple of barbed, tapered nipples to slip the hose on.
My older Invacare only had a non-removable tapered barbed outlet, so I just cut-off the hose fitting and slipped the hose on the OC. On my DeVilbiss (shown below), the plastic barbed fitting is removable, and when I removed it, discovered that my kevlar hose (which has 'B' fittings on one end), screws right on the OC outlet. The same kevlar hose has 'A' fittings on the torch end, so it attaches directly to the torch without adapters.
