Definitions for "Gadget"
Keywords:  pontil, spring, clip, grip, ggw
A specialized rod with a plunger activated spring clip on its end to grip the foot of newly made glass objects, while the worker finishes the piece. The replaces the pontil and avoid the mark a pontil would leave. When the work is finished, the glass can be remotely dropped into a bed of sand before annealing.
Spring-clip device used (from c 1860) for holding the foot of a drinking-glass while it was finished, so obviating the pontil mark
A tool for holding the foot of a glass, so a punty does not have to be used, speeding work. (GGW) a tube with three spring steel "fingers" that extend. May also be a special tool for a specific shape, as inside a production vase for footing (GGNJ)

In computer science, gadgets are often used to construct reductions from one problem to another. Each element of the first problem is converted to a gadget built from elements of the second problem. For example, many reductions of 3-satisfiability to problems involving graphs use gadgets that represent variables and clauses of the 3-satisfiability instance; the gadgets themselves are "graph pieces" built from vertices and edges.
