A lever of wood or metal fitted to the rudder head and used for turning side to side in steering. In small boats hand power is used; in large vessels, the tiller is moved by means of mechanical appliances. See Illust. of Rudder. Cf. 2d Helm, 1.
A metal bar or wooden handle attached to the top of the rudder to steer a yacht. If, for example, the helmsman wants to steer to starboard, he/she pushes the tiller to port. Large yachts usually use a wheel instead of a tiller, some even have twin steering wheels.
A lever, often removable, that connects to the boat's rudder via an "S" shaped bar aptly called a Swan's Neck. Pushing the tiller to right turns the boat to the left and vice versa. The tiller is secured to the Swan's Neck with a "tiller pin".
A type of ladder truck with a second cab at the rear of the truck where a firefighter will steer the rear wheels. Because tiller trucks can steer in the front and the back, they are able to navigate turns that other ladder trucks could not. Our neighbors in Little Rock currently have two companies using tillered apparatus -- Truck Company 1 downtown and Truck Company 7 near University Medical Center.
A tiller or till is a lever attached to a rudder post (American terminology) or rudder stock (English terminology) of a boat in order to provide the leverage for the helmsman to turn the rudder. The tiller is normally used by the helmsman directly pulling or pushing it, but it may also be moved remotely using tiller lines.
Strictly a secondary flowering/seedbearing stalk in wheat or other cereal plant. Desirable in that the plant produces a greater number of seeds per seed planted. The term is sometimes used loosely to refer to any, including the primary, flowering stalk.

To shape the limbs of an unfinished bow for even bending. The reaction of the limbs whereby the nock ends propel the arrow in a straight line by moving an equal distance in equal time to return to brace height by means of the various stresses in the top and bottom limbs with compensation for the bowhand pressure below and the arrow axis/centre line above the centre of gravity of the bow.
These are the individual units of a grass plant. Grasses are made up of a collection of tillers, each tiller having a single stem, roots and leaves. In ryegrass tillers have a maximum of 3 growing leaves
The distance from the string perpendicular to each limb. On a compound, loosing or tightening the adjusting bolts to will get the distance equal. On a long bow or recurve, material must be removed from the bow to give the needed distance. We hope that this has helped in some way to advance your knowledge of archery and bow hunting.
