                A simple machine...


                A screw can be considered to be an inclined plane that has been wrapped around some central axis. You can see this relationship by making an inclined plane out of paper and then wrapping the paper around a pencil. The spiral shaped form that you make is a screw.

                  An Archimedes A-2000 screw sold by the Archimedes Tool and Machine Company.

                  And,yes,I noticed that the question involved being "attached to something with...",so I'd say that FireMech1 won the prize.
                  I just have to default to being a smart axe.It's what I am.
