Thank you, but this does not solve my problem.  To clarify what I want, I have
2 Plots plotted with identical x values, but different scales on the y axis,


However, both plots are plotted with the same dimensions, including the
mismatched tick labels on the y-axis.  -0.5 is longer than -20, so the actual
region of the frame is smaller.  I want Mathematica to give me both plots so
that the size of the frame is the same, so that I can use a ruler on a
print-out to directly compare points between the two graphs.

With trial and error, I could probably manually resize the PlotRegion:


but there has to be a better method.
