High strength shafts with worm wheel?

I’m trying to use a high strength shaft on a gear that will mesh with a worm gear, ideally I would want to use the worm wheel part (pictured) but the hole is for the normal shafts. Can the grey insert thing be removed and if so is the hole underneath the high strength size? image

The short answer is no, the worm wheels cannot be used with a high strength shaft. Can you please explain what you are using the worm gear for?

I assembled this in CAD then realised you’re referring to the smaller worm gear and corresponding wheel, but maybe this would serve your purpose? I can’t see CAD for your parts anywhere. I haven’t tested this in metal and plastic, so it may be that the high strength adapter would twist out of the HS clamp, so I wondered about using the adapter insert supplied with the 12 tooth spur gears as shown nearer the camera.

Yeah that’s what I’m going for, I’ll see if the adapter works
