wobble pump

A type of hand-operated pump used to move a fluid such as gasoline or oil. The handle of a wobble pump is attached to a flat plate inside a housing that is equipped with four flapper-type check valves. Moving the handle back and forth (wobbling it) pulls fluid into one side of the pump and forces it out the other side.
