At least you aren't alone.  The question runs in my family too.   My
dad once went into a tire store with a similar question - "How do you
calibrate your tire gauges?" - and they looked at him like he was from

I suppose there are electronic gauges that are reasonably accurate,
though a calibration certificate is expensive.  And then there's this:

Lots more choices here including an
"economy" gauge for $40 that "reads to 1/2 lb".  No mention of
accuracy, though.  Need to go more $$$ to get them to say anything
about that..

I'm curious as to what others may have to say...
