Engineer’s wide corner (6)


I believe the answer is:


'engineer's' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'wide corner' is the wordplay.
'wide' becomes 'w' (abbreviation e.g. in cricket).
'corner' becomes 'angle' (I've seen this before).

(Other definitions for wangle that I've seen before include "Acquire by devious means" , "Obtain (something) by manipulation" , "Bring about by scheming" , "Obtain by being persuasive" , "Use craft to get" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
