Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Some have multiple meanings, as well.
There's something called [link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_peening|shot peen] that is a process in which tiny ball-bearings are applied to metals in a process like sandblasting. It serves to harden surfaces (e.g. in connecting rods of racing engines.) IOW, peen is also a verb.

[link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrule|Ferrule] is also the name of a tapered ring in a tube fitting used to ensure a leak-tight seal that can be disconnected and reconnected several times. It's also the name for a metal clamping ring around cables, etc., to keep them from fraying and to tie them around bushings, etc.

Another list of obscure words is [link|http://www.kokogiak.com/logolepsy/|Luciferous Logolepsy].

Cheers,
Scott.
New And of course, peen is what you do with . . .
. . a ball peen hammer.

Is it enough to love
Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
 
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary
Please
