    Bill,

    Geez, I can't believe I typo'd again, this time with no distractions!

    #7001=44.598 was supposed to be #7004=44.598. That gave me 445.98, still.

    I also tried #1=#5224. #1 equaled...

    Thanks to all for the replies.

    358Mustang, I hadn't thought about incorporating the coordinate system rotation mode, G68 ... that is a creative idea. However, the 20° angle is already positioned...

    Hello,

    For what it's worth, here is the macro I wrote to calculate the angle of rotation based on what was found when indicating bore -B- from programmed X0Y0 (Bore -A-), so I can use G68 (coordinate...

    Thanks for the replies.

    It was very simple, I got screwed up because I had the drawing wrong (datum -C- bore in the wrong location to start with), so when I rotated it the angle -B- was off to -A-...
