The Brake Shoe Template is designed to be printed at 100% or Actual Size.

To Print the PDF at actual size, check the printer dialog and make sure the scaling is set to none or 100% (this varies according to the version of PDF reader you have). After printing, check the printed piece with a ruler on both sides to ensure that the printed piece is at actual size and is not skewed. If the rulers are not six inches in length, re-check the printer settings. Scaling/reduction can appear in multiple locations depending on your printer and operating system.
