We examine a spiralling slender in viscid liquid jet with a curved centre line which emerges from a rotating orifice. The trajectory of this jet is determined using asymptotic methods, and the stability using a multiple scales approach. Some novel results will be presented and discussed. © 2001 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
