To cut the gear as helical, with depth of cut set and table feed engaged, use these:

                  44 x 68
INDEX = ----------
                  46 x 86

               24 x 53
FEED = ----------
               62 x 71

This setup gives you a table feed of .022 in/rev, and applies for a RH single start hob cutter only.
Also, table feed direction must be toward the headstock (conventional cutting).

BTW, The gears you were using (36/48) are right for a 16T spur gear and also for "throating" the 16T worm gear. It sounds like you want to cut it as a helical gear, tho.

Be sure to set your cutter table angle to the right by:

(16D 7M minus the hob cutter angle)

Also, the nominal measurement over two 0.024752 pins is 0.2727 for a helical gear, but this may not be correct for your worm gear application.

Let me know if you need different table feed and/or different gear changes...
