How to add lines, coincident to the ends of a helix, then fillet the joints

Hello,

 

Could someone please help me with this issue.

 

Problem:  I am trying to create a torsion spring model that has straight ends at the ends of the helix

I created these lines, but I cannot add a relation between the helix endpoints, and the line endpoints.

 

My goal with this question is to figure out how to 1) add a "coincident" relation to the helix endpoints and the line endpoints 2) add a fillet between the helix and lines

 

Once I have that, I can draw a profile of the spring and sweep it along the "helix / line".

 

Thank you very much for the help, I've wasted enough time trying to solve this on my own.
