         Here is your solution.  Imperial Supplies has calibrateable tire 
gauges , under Hardware, Tire Hardware

Calibratable gauges:

They also have an Air Gauge Test Station:  (includes video of 
calibration procedure)

This could be fabbed up fairly easily.  A piece of pipe with ends welded 
up, a port with a regulator for filling the pipe with air at a specific 
pressure, a port fitted with an accurate test gauge (McMaster has 
High-Accuracy Gauges that would work) and a Shader valve to attach the tire 
gauge you want to test.

'86 GTI, Red of course. (exciting racey car) 276,000 miles
'01 Golf TDI, silver.   (new work car)       412,000 miles
'87 Golf, Polar Silver. (retired work car)   654,000 miles <- Gone to a new 
home :( <-Ferrari & VW stuff
