These days, even moderately priced scales are usually very repeatable, but not necessarily accurate, so two scales of the same model/manufacturer are likely to read the same, even if not accurate. Better if you can find one high quality scale to compare with. Many EAA chapters have some you can rent or borrow.
Also be sure to relieve any side pressure from the gear legs. In principle this shouldn’t matter, but with real-world scales it might.
