Which is the easiest way to turn Spirals?.....Anyone know of a goof video out there?...or a jig perhaps?

Hey I can do that without even trying and no fancy machine either. :rofl::rofl::rofl:
Yeah, all I need is a skew and I can do that. :eek:

The only spirals I've seen done on a lathe were done by hand, with the lathe turned off. (We had a guy demo making spiral-carved walking sticks at a turning club meeting a while back. He used a round Microplane rasp and sandpaper.)

Sears used to sell a tool called the Router Crafter that could do that. I see one on Ebay every once in a while.

oops! Sorry Roger, I didn't see your post.
