Root diameter =15.82mm
Base diameter =9.54mm
Addendum =3.81mm
Axial pitch =11.969mm

RE: Worm gear zi

I've looked and haven't found formulas. The most I've seen is a listing of the deviation of a perfect straight line for different sized teeth and different lead angles. But they only give 3 points: beginning, end and middle.
