Using a worm gear allows a very high torque conversion ratio using a minimum amount of steel and absolutely no lubricant, instead incurring a loss of potential top speed and causing a drop in total power output.

Rotarycraft Handbook DescriptionEdit

"The worm gear is a fast way to increase shaft torque without using a large number of intermediate gears, creating an equivalent 64:1 ratio with comparatively low material or space requirements. However, worm gears are inefficient and will lose some of their power, leading to a much slower output speed. This loss rate goes up as the input speed does."
