English term or phrase: a dwindle
czesc maszyny ostrzacej narzedzia stalowe/metalowe
Kasia Allen
Polish translation:zmniejszać się, maleć
Explanation:
DWINDLE = to grow or cause to grow less in size, intensity, or number; diminish or shrink gradually
(Collins English Dictionary)
= ZMNIEJSZAĆ SIĘ, MALEĆ, ZANIKAĆ, KURCZYĆ SIĘ...

Personally, I do not know a noun meaning of the word DWINDLE. Neither have I found any reference for it in machine tooling contexts...

Are you absolutely sure that this word is used as a noun?

How about pronunciation?

Maybe the source text was not written by a native English?

Please paste the entire sentence or paragraph in the explanation/context box to provide more context.
