What an idiot...my spindle tuning didn't save so everything was at zero ::)...it works now! So now I just have to get the tuning right. Thanks for everyone's help.

Did you ever get this to work for you? Do you have a sample of what the code looks like. I want our CAM reseller to write a post for CAMWorks but they are asking for some sample code? We purchased a Syil X5 Combo and this could be huge if I could get this thing to do some peal grinding or also known as Cylindrical grinding while still have indexing control over the A-axis. What is this swap axis macro?

No, at least not with the swapaxis. I ended up using CNCWrapper or something like that do mill around a tube.
