Home made boost valve?

I was looking at the PPE boost valve and was thinking to my self "Why is this thing worth $30.00 bucks?" I don't know much about boost valves but It looks like you might be able to whip one out with a few parts from a hardware store. Anyone ever tried it?











If this is in the wrong section I'm sorry I just didn't know where it should go...

Any tips on how to do it? I'm not looking to make an adjustable one.
