You are probably in edit mode when you are trying to convert to curve.  Alt+C will only come up if you are in object mode. *"In Edit Mode Alt+Select the outer thread.  This is the start of your coil.* *Still in edit mode with the coil selected press "P" and Separate Selection.* ***Jump out of edit mode,** select the bolt and delete, you should now be left with the coil.* *Next step is to convert the mesh coil to a curve.* *Press Alt+C and choose Curve from Mesh."*
