That will be a worm and pinion, won't it?

I am sure a gearey type person will say it's more complicated than an acme thread, but looking
at a worm they look like acme threads. I was intending on making one for my velo, then scored a new
pair of gears, very cheap. The velo is a 20dp 14.5 º gear, it's reasonably easy to get these figures off the
Worm and gear. You might be lucky and find a stock gear from one of the gear makers fit's.
So if you know someone with a lathe they should be able to make you one.
