Several weeks ago someone asked, in a different thread, how one might draw a corkscrew. Here's the result of one approach...

Here is a question for us forum members to ponder.
Does Henry ever get it "wrong"?  ;D
Great job henry, looks like some of the feed screws I have designed here at work.

You'll never know he might be up to his old shenanigans.I bet he has one to tap maple syrup from his old black maple tree. Similar to a Buckwing Hunter's Hand Auger ;)

I can make a corkscrew too.  I used the Revolve tool. unchecked Spiral and made the Taper Angle zero.  My issue is how to make a sharp point at the end of the spiral.  I tried the Blend tool several ways and I haven't tried to revolve a cone yet.  Any suggestions?

One way: Make a Cone, with "Specify 2D Base" enabled, using the profile you Revolved as the 2D Base. 3D Add the two pieces and blend the joint if you wish.

Hi Henry.  That was me asking about the corkscrew before.  You showed me how to do it.  It was for a wine bottle stopper/corkscrew I made with an acrylic handle that I turned on the lathe.

I'm trying to use a torus and place it somewhere on the end and cut it up but it takes a lot of work.  Is there such a thing as a cornucopia?  I would fit it over the end and subtract it like I do for my countersinks.  Or maybe just add it.  The end of the screw is kinda bent inward and smashed to a point but I've never seen them made.  Henry, yours looks great but will it pull a cork out of a bottle of Two Buck Chuck?  :-)

An approach that produces a curved point: Create a Helix, Explode to a 3D Spline (black in the attached screenshot), then use Split Entity to clip off the last little bit(red). Rail Sweep a circle (.0625" dia in this example) along the larger piece (medium goldenrod). Rail sweep a tiny circle (.0005" dia) along the smaller piece and specify a Draft End Distance (.031" here) that will make it match the first Sweep at the interface.

Yeah those where the days,If I recall it was Fred Sanford beverage of choice,it had the taste simlar of grain alcohol. But I prefer a nice chilled Gewürztraminer,or on hot day ice cold Sapporo ( Japanese) beer

Mom and I watch Sanford and Son four days a week and it's funnier than ever.  Gewurztraminer is also one of my favorites.

Looks wonderful, Henry.
The metal is very reallistic and certainly is a great piece of modeling.

Ouch. Nice Henry!  But it reminds me of something similar.  When I was in grade school, I was messing a round with a ballpoint pen spring, and I hooked it into a finger, and it had enough of a barb that I couldn't back it out.  So off to the doctor, who gave me a numbing shot before cutting the spring out.  He said, "OK, is it numb?"  I said, "No not yet.....", but he said, "well it should be...", and started cutting anyway...!!  Ouch.
