@Dave - I'm just making one of these at the moment (self isolation project).  I found a schrader valve that screws directly into the gauge thread.  It saved me drilling a hole and installing the valve.  I'm just sorting a few fittings for exit hose to use the existing threads then it will be finished. Also these things can take a massive amount of pressure (mine is rated to 250 bar).  Did you ever think of filling it with a compressor and using it a an air tank?  You would have to be careful with the delivery of the air into the tyre but would save pumping it up each time you needed to use it.
