In this tute you can find a short explanation of the screw function. Just play around with tilted lines and you should get something pretty good.

There are some good tutes here http://members.yourlink.net/gruff/. I thought there was a bolt tutorial, but it covers modeling the head (in this case a hex head bolt), and not the shaft.
