Worm Gear :

Essential Mechanism

Turn the handle on the Worm Gear / Cam box and the gear inside advances one turn for each turn of the handle, a speed reduction of 12:1. Inside the box is a snail cam and cam follower which slowly lift as the gear turns and then suddenly drop at the end of the twelve turn cycle.
