A worm gear arrangement is disclosed in which the central idlers mate with a
hex feature to transmit torque. A secondary worm reduction is directly coupled to the
primary worm reduction to re-align (untwist) the torque direction so as to make it
possible to drive parallel shafts in a minimal space.
