The article "The Development of Worm Drives" appeared in the February 2018 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.
A worm drive is a geared power transmission device in which a worm meshes with a worm gear to transmit power between two non-intersecting shafts that are oriented at a right angle. The worm drive has been an active and challenging topic of technological study since Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519).
