Do you mean the *length* of the helix, or just of 1 turn? My helix is 3.5 
turns and 3" long. Do you mean for the cup to be as deep as the helix is 
long?. If this is so, what sort of length cup would be suitable for say a 
20 turn helix? Would it still be effective if it was say only 1" deep, this 
would make mounting the feed easier in my case.
