Worms and Wheel mechanisms comprise a Wheel, which has many teeth, and a Worm gear, which features a very small number of teeth. This mismatch in teeth numbers creates large amounts of torque, and greatly slows rotational speed to allow for highly precise adjustments.
Worm and Wheel mechanisms are particularly useful in that they can typically only be driven from the Worm side, resulting in a mechanism with excellent non-reversible properties.
