I have scoured the net, and haven’t found a whole lot of information.
Found an old guttenburg textbook, that is extremely old and hard for me to follow, and tons of cnc machinery that will do it for you. There is tons on how to prevent spiraling.
I am not looking into threading, and my thoughts is that there may be a similar method.
Wil is no help, as he says I shouldn’t bother, it would require too much work and effort.
blumix I say, (trying to get myself in the habit of not swearing, my son listens to me too well sometimes)
They used to do it back in the day, there has to be something about how to do it without getting lazy and a fully automated lathe. Too expensive for one, and ridiculous application for a tiny bit of spiraling. Not a hard cut in the tips. but more graceful lines that blend kind of.
my turnip looking ‘head’ on my spindles, would like to have 3-4 spirals that fade into the ‘neck’ region.
