Merging model pieces together when saved individually??

Here is what I got. I modeled two pieces individually so I would fill my screen with more than one piece. I then tried to open each piece and then tiled them side by side and I can get either piece into the other piece's viewport but I can't get them lined up no matter what I do.

I also tried the insert block command but I am coming up short trying to assemble the pieces together.

I tried doing it both ways and not only could I not get them joined but I also couldn't get them to line up right!! I know I did the measurement for both pieces correctly.

I messed with AutoCAD years ago and I am trying to get back into it - I bought AutoCAD for Dummies but after advise from a few on her, I returned it and I bought a tutorial book written specifically for AutoCAD and while it helps, I have found most these books are some what cluttered and hard to find bits and pieces without a major hunt for them.

Any help you guys can send to me, I would greatly appreciate. I am running ProgeCAD 2013 Professional - basically AutoCAD - functions exactly the same.

Thanks, Zac.
