Is this a commercially available piece?

Doesn't look like it. There's the worm gear for the mains-powered motors but isn't that smaller? Plus, it doesn't link with the red gear

It's not an official piece that the Knex company makes.

From the website http://www.mlgprojects.com/knex/worm/index.html

"There I met Stuart Borrill who makes custom gears for the Meccano system. I managed to persuade him to make a worm gear that would fit K'nex, and here is the result. I have not yet actually built anything with it, but hope to soon."
This is not a signature.

I don't think that is a real piece, but it should be.
My three best things to do:
Minecraft: https://hypixel.net
K'nex
The Blockheads: https://forums.theblockheads.net

No, like @Shadowman said, it's not a real piece. I wish it was though; it would be so useful!
Quick, think of a signature! Insert it here:_________.
Thanks, that's my signature.
