reef
 v.— «I spun the clutch with my electric starter when I first got the machine. When I went in to tighten it up, I used a dowel in the carb throat and really reefed on it. This may have caused the fan to distort and result in the runout.» —“Concept comments and questions” by Joe Diederichs Usenet: rec.models.rc July 20, 1990. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
