I agree Dennis, how is that done?

Fantastic, well done! Pure ingenuity and no legacy mill there…

Id like the video, but would love to see it done on in person, and also like to know how the holes are drilled, its like the bit has a mind of its own. Nice work on the lamps.

It looks as though the spirals have to be precision cut so that a tube could be bent to precisely the same
spiral, then a special cable driven cutter head mounted onto the front of the tube. The cable would have
had to have flexible auger wound around it to allow for chip removal. That is what I think, but I have been
wrong several times before. Thank you for sharing and now I think I will go play in the workshop and see
if I can finish my half circle cutting jig.

everyone is interested in how holes were drilled through the spirals.
You could say I control this flex shaft with magnets.
But, the more difficult part is, making each spiral round.
I appreciate all the comments and questions.
