Please attach some images of your part and tree.
What steps did you taken so far?
Can you upload your part:

Maybe you already know this, but since the recent format change if you'll click on a link after pasting it, then click on the big "T", it will shorten the link to the Discussion title instead of the entire text string, like this: How can I attach a file to a forum post?

No, Mr. Schroeder I didn't know that.
It auto titles in my Firefox, but since I was in IE, I (mis)understood that this non-title version was all there was for IE.
Thank you very much. An excellent tip.

I wondering if twist is the feature you're after. Your intentions are an important factor. Are you looking to manufacture this part? If so, sheet metal mat be the way to go. If you are just looking for a 3D representation, a revolve with circular pattern might be the best approach. Or download one from places like McMaster-Carr.
Here is how I did it. See attached SW2018 SP5 file.
Here's another way.
Another way to model it:
If by Twist you mean Flex with the Twist setting, then you need to do two things:First set your planes to the start and end of the affected region of your solid, -which you indicate, you have done
Second, move your triad to the starting plane. You can right-click on the white circle at the center of the XYZ gimbal and select, "move triad to trim plane 1" or "move triad to Trim plane 2" This limits the effect to the faces between the two planes.
Now in order to have the flex feature only affect the tooth and not the other faces the trim planes intersect, you need to pair the tooth off as it's own body. I'd create cylinder on the in inner ring of the washer and use intersect to pair the solid.
Just make sure your trim planes don't intersect the cylindrical face that resulting from splitting the part, otherwise, it might not merge back together.
