What's with the 'helper pad'? I deleted it because I thought it wasn't doing anything and that broke it.
That "helper pad" is used to provide a face to map to for the last 2 pockets. Once the "S" shape is pocketed from the cube, there is no planar surface on which to map the next sketches for the ID and OD of the washer. This thread
explains the concept.

OK, so there is a difference. I think that will need to involve a sweep then. I'll give that a go a bit later on this evening, if your not in a real big hurry for it, or someone else doesn't get to it first.
