Very nice indeed....incredible detail.
I am curious how you created the worm gear set?

Sorry, I am unable to add the quadrant gear file for you to view as it is B.27 MB and to large include.
I will look at it again to see if I can reduce the file to be able to attach.

Is there a way to include larger files here?

No, you have to use a publicly available file service like dropbox.

FAO. ppemawm.
As promised, I attach files for quadrant and worm gears.
I have not radius-ed all the quadrant teeth to save space.
You will see the steps involved when you go through the file.
Hope this helps.
