Should work then, if you want to attach your xml I will have a look to see if I can find a problem but if its the wiring you will have to test with a scope or voltmeter to make sure the signals are getting through.

How can I jog the A axis to see if it is working, are there keyboard hot keys for that?

If its slaved then I dont think you can other than jogging via the X, not 100% certain on that as I have only messed with slaving on the coil winder and never tried jogging the A on its own whilst slaved. If you unslave it however you could press the Tab key on your keyboard and in the flyout screen you can use the mouse on the 4+ and 4- buttons to jog.

ARRRRRRRRRR!!  ???

Unslaved it and it still wont move, I have 27V on all four wires, is there any way I can test for a pulse without a scope?

Yes, if you connect the voltmeter to Dir pin and the common of the axis in question then you should get 5v jogging one way then 0v the other.
If you connect to Step pin and common pin then depending on active Low setting you will either see the voltage at zero and increase a bit as you jog or see 5V and decrease a bit as you jog. Best to start at the cable if you  disconnect from the BOB, you will likely have to change the active state of Limits and E-Stop though so you can do that. If its working from cable then you can test out further.
