Worm and Worm Wheel are used when large gear reductions are needed. It is common for Worm and Worm Wheel to have reductions of 20:1, and even up to 300:1 or greater. Many worm gears have an interesting property that no other gear set has worm & worm wheel is self locking. This is because the angle on the worm is so shallow that when the gear tries to spin it, the friction between the gear and the worm holds the worm in place.
