All you need to do is compare each gauge to a known accurate pressure gauge using a regulated constant pressure system, and then ****can the bad gauges.

Some of the bigger aircraft shops that are FAA Certified Repair Stations have calibration gauges.

OR you could just use your existing hose and buy a certified gauge from an aircraft place. This would probably be cheaper and less hassle.
