Worm gear

is the gear self locking? as in if the motor stop will it still turn?? i m currently looking at Tamiya 72005 6-Speed Gearbox. i am using it for a pulley system… i am concern that once the motor stop the weight of the load will unwhine the pulley if the motor or the gear is not self locking


The comparison table at the bottom of each Tamiya gearbox page shows which gearboxes have worm gears. They are the 70103, 70110, and 72004. The 6-speed gearbox does not have a worm gear.
