We seem to see this question about this time every year... well it seem so...

Here is a brain probe:
If you run a strip of metal between two rollers with one side tighter than the other in such a way as to coin (squeeze) the metal on the tight side the correct amount, you will cold "roll form" a screw sprial. This can be welded to a shaft to form a screw conveyor. It can be done.

The worst suggestion of your lifetime may be the catalyst to the grandest idea of the century, never let suggestions go unsaid nor fail to listen to them.
