Brakes, Breaks, What's the difference?

In my never-ending quest to make the world perfect, I offer the following for future posting consideration...

BRAKE - A part of a vehicle that is designed to slow or stop the vehicle.

BREAK - What will happen to said vehicle or you if the above does not work properly.
-also, What you may be on from your work or other planned routine if above does not work properly.

Example. If your BRAKEs fail to work, it could BREAK your vehicle and some bones, and you might be on an extended BREAK from your job.

Back to your regularly scheduled waste of time.

To clarify would your broken brake include the following?

brake
1. A toothed device for crushing and beating flax or hemp.
2. A heavy harrow for breaking clods of earth.
3. An apparatus for kneading large amounts of dough.
4. A machine for bending and folding sheet metal.

tr.v. braked, brak·ing, brakes
1. To crush (flax or hemp) in a toothed device.
2. To break up (clods of earth) with a harrow.

Also: A lever or handle on a machine such as a pump. .

Or: Any of various ferns having compound leaves, including several popular houseplants.

And: An area overgrown with dense brushwood, briers, and undergrowth; a thicket. (a cane brake)

What's the difference? Grade 6.

Thanks for giving me a laugh. As a guy that writes procedures for a living, simple spelling errors are one of my pet peeves

Good luck

Good luck in your quest for perfect diction. You're shoveling 'you know what' against the tide.
