The original scale was scanned at 600  DPI before I edited it. The image is 
1547 pixels wide, so it is 2.58". this multiplied by 2.54 equals 65.53mm, 
so go into your graphics program, select print properties, and set width to 
65.53mm, or if set by pixels to 1547. ensure that the maintain aspect ratio 
is selected ( paintshop pro ), or if your graphics prog has allow 
distortion ( picture publisher ), it is un ticked. Print it out, it should 
be exact size.
