why does my helical cut/protrusion keep failing

Pioneer

Im trying to simply make a helical cut or protrusion with a tapered angle.  For the cutout I have my selected profile, axis, and axis start.  I am putting this feature inside a tube that is reducing linearly starting with an ID of 16, ending with 8mm.. and 112mm long.  I can get a straight cutout or protrusion fine, but when I add in the angle it either freezes or says the Boolean Operator Failed.  any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Without seeing it, it's hard to say exactly what the problem is. Can you post your model? It may be that the helical feature intersects itself at some point in the operation, which might cause a problem.
