Cannot create the "tool body" for a solid swept cut.

I am creating a precision cylindrical barrel cam that has a very particular profile and path. This profile is to be cut ultimately with a spherical end mill.
I have modeled the path for the cut along the cylindrical body as a composite curve made from two 2D sketches and a helix. I have created a sketch with corresponding profile of the end mill.
I should be good to go EXCEPT when I revolve this sketch the "merge results" check box is not present and I am not able to make a multi body feature.
This creating feature has been driving me nuts for hours and I am probably missing something very basic.
I wondering if anybody can lend me some sanity?

 

Thanks!
