German term or phrase: Wendelgang
In a patent relating to a rock drill bit the following sentence occurs:
"Im wesentlichen verbreitet sich bei einem Wendelbohrer für Gestein längs der Drechachse die Breite des Rückens des WENDELGANGES in Richtung des Werkzeugkopfes."

I'm having trouble with Wendelgang and the Rücken part. Any ideas re: Wendelgang and Rücken would be very gratefully appreciated ...

Best regards,
Harold

spiral gear


Explanation:
I'm afraid this is just a guess based on Ernst's dictionary below. He says a Wendelbohrer is a spiral borer or twist drill.

helical screw / lifting screw / Archimedian screw


Explanation:
See Google: http://www.google.com/search?q= "helical screw"&hl=en&safe=o...
for lots of sites, many of which do not seem applicable.
I think this is the modern term for the Archimedian screw, which lifts material through a tube, although the principle has in the meantime had many technica variations.
