More worm work

My curiosity with worm gears continues...

The gears I printed yesterday were too small to make workable, and I've since modified the OpenSCAD file to give me better sized parts.

I need to make a mount that will hold the NEMA17 and the 8mm rod and a couple of bearings along with the gears.  This is what I have right now:

Like I said yesterday, OpenSCAD is a wonderful program (with limitations) and I'll use it to design and build the mount.  Hopefully it'll be done soon and I can see the worm drive in action!
