comment parameterization of helical torus
@J.M. Yes, that looks like it.

comment parameterization of helical torus
If the arclength is not a multiple of $2\pi R_2$ I believe the helix will not meet up with it's starting point. But by uniform I mean a sort of symmetry similar to the torus(which has two axis of symmetry). Essentially any rotation of the torus about it's axis should be equivalent. (although it might not be exact due to the helix having an offset)

comment parameterization of helical torus
Yeah, its identical. But to get a uniform "wrapping" of torus by the helix I think one has to potentially know the arclength of the helix and make sure it is a multiple of $2\pi R_2$.
