Definitions for "wedge"
Keywords:  loft, golf, lob, club, iron
A golf club having an iron head with the face nearly horizontal, used for lofting the golf ball at a high angle, as when hitting the ball out of a sand trap or the rough.
(aka: "pitching wedge", "sand wedge", "lob wedge", "third wedge", "utility wedge") a short iron with significant loft mainly for playing shorter, more lofted shots. Example: "After a nice tee shot, she only had a wedge left to the green."
A short high lofted club intended to make the ball go high but not long. A pitching wedge usually has a loft of 48 degrees or more, while lob wedges have a 60 degree or higher loft.

This is the thing that a fork-mounted Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope will attach to, to connect it to the tripod. You want it to be sturdy.
The part that fits between the tripod or pillar and the fork of a fork-mounted telescope, which enables the fork to be equatorially aligned.
An equatorial wedge is used for imaging with a fork-mounted telescope. Most computerized telescopes have alt-azimuth fork mounts where the fork point straight up and down. This configuration is easiest to use because the eyepiece is always in a convenient position and the telescope is less bulky. However, field rotation results if the telescope is not polar aligned. An equatorial wedge mounts between the telescope and tripod to allow the forks to be aimed toward Polaris so the telescope can track in just one axis, eliminating field rotation.
A plastic or magnesium tool used by a faller to redistribute a tree's weight to a desired direction (lift) and to prevent a tree from sitting back. Also used to prevent the guide bar from being pinched while bucking.
Refers to the relationship from corner-to-corner of the weight of the race vehicle. Increasing the weight on any corner of the vehicle affects the weight of the other three corners in direct proportion. Weight adjustments are made by turning "weight jacking screws" mounted on each corner with a ratchet. A typical adjustment for a "loose" car would be to increase the weight of the left rear corner of the vehicle, which decreases the weight of the left front and right rear corners and increases the weight of the right front. A typical adjustment for a "tight" vehicle would be to increase the weight of the right rear corner, which decreases the weight of the right front and left rear and increases the weight of the left front.
squeeze like a wedge into a tight space; "I squeezed myself into the corner"
A wedge decodes "read" data (i.e. bar codes, credit cards) and communicates that information through a keyboard port on a computer. The keyboard plugs into the wedge and the wedge device plugs into the computer where the keyboard was. Sophisticated wedges can accept a few different peripheral devices. Also See Decode.
This is a device that plugs in between a keyboard and a terminal. It allows data to be entered either by keyboard or by various types of scanners.
A device that plugs in between a keyboard and a PC. The wedge takes data from a bar code scanner and converts the data to represent keystrokes.

Foldback speaker placed on the floor at the feet of stage vocalists to deliver the monitor mix for performers.
A monitor speaker, in the shape of a wedge, designed to sit on the floor and be directed toward the performer(s).
Keywords:  shoe, heel, hoof, ultrasonic, contour
A heel shape characterized by a solid wedge shaped platform heel with the heel portion being raised above the toe.

A device used to direct ultrasonic energy into a test object at an acute angle. See also shoe.
(or Wedge Tornado) - [Slang], a large tornado with a condensation funnel that is at least as wide (horizontally) at the ground as it is tall (vertically) from the ground to cloud base. The term "wedge" often is used somewhat loosely to describe any large tornado. However, not every large tornado is a wedge. A true wedge tornado, with a funnel at least as wide at the ground as it is tall, is very rare. Wedges often appear with violent tornadoes (F4 or F5 on the Fujita Scale), but many documented wedges have been rated lower. And some violent tornadoes may not appear as wedges (e.g., Xenia, OH on 3 April 1974, which was rated F5 but appeared only as a series of suction vortices without a central condensation funnel). Whether or not a tornado achieves "wedge" status depends on several factors other than intensity - in particular, the height of the environmental cloud base and the availability of moisture below cloud base. Therefore, spotters should not estimate wind speeds or F-scale ratings based on visual appearance alone. However, it generally is safe to assume that most (if not all) wedges have the potential to produce strong (F2/F3) or violent (F4/F5) damage.
Primarily refers to an elongated area of shallow high pressure at the earth's surface. It is generally associated with cold air east of the Rockies or Appalachians. It is another name for a ridge, ridge line, or ridge axis. Contrast with a trough. Wedge is also a slang term for a large, wide tornado with a wedge-like shape.
