No it's not the G91 A60 in the second program G0 is active, and for the fun of it I tried puting G0 on the same line.

Ah, yes, so it is. Sorry.

I am stumped, I have to admit.
I think what I would so here would be to modify the code to look like this and see what I see.
(  MAIN PROGRAM  )
(debug, start main)
G0G17G20G40G80G90
(debug, point 1)
T1M6
(debug, point 2)
G0 X[#<xlocation>] Y[#<ypositive>]
(debug, point 3)
Z[#<zfinish>]
(debug, point 4)
G1 Y[#<ynegitive>] F10.0
(debug, point 5)
G0 Z[#<zrough>+.25]
(debug, point 6)
G91 A60
(debug, point 7)
G0G90
(debug, point 8)
M30

I got it to run, but I had to completely pull out any tool call up.

For some reason I can't call a tool T?M6 and use my 4th axis.

That's extremely strange.

If you look at the tool.tbl file in a text editor is there anything wierd going on? (like an offset in the A-axis)

Yes, but, what does the tool.tbl file look like in a text editor? Perhaps it has become corrupted or has "grown" some DOS line-endings or something.

In fact, why not try deleting tool.tbl and creating a new tool file?

Are you using hal_manuatoolchange?
Can you check that is isn't hidden underneath the main Axis window?
