Personally, I don't think the calcs work well for DLs. They seem to be pretty accurate for bench, press, etc. but for squats and deads, there's just too much of a mental aspect that can't be taken into account in the calcs.
Here's one calc (WFS): http://www.exrx.net/Calculators/OneRepMax.html
but take the results with a grain of salt. Everyone's different.
