I made a worm and gear today, a first for me. Actually I made two worms and cut some gashes in one and used that to cut the gear. Eventually I hope to make a 4th axis for my CNC router and this is the first step. The gear blank (delrin plastic) was purposely mounted above center (I am thinking this will allow simple adjustment for backlash/wear).
