Christopher, You can use a Frame and the FrameTicks option to specify a scale for the rhs of the frame. If you need a different scale, I suppose you have also scaled f2 when plotting it? If you want to use different scales and "anticipate a lengthy process of building up all the graphics primitives" you may be interested in the new DrawGraphics package at my web site below. With it, it is very easy to build up graphics that contains elements from different plot types, as there are parallel routines to each of the Mathematica plot types that directly extract the primitive graphics without side plots. There are also useful routines for manipulating primitive graphics and other convenience routines. The package comes with very extensive Help files that work just like regular Help. There are graphics examples for every command. Specifically there is a CustomTicks command which makes it quite easy to generate custom tick marks with very complete control of scale, styles and labeling.
