Title: Fluid delivery apparatus

Abstract: The present invention provides an apparatus with a moving nozzle that delivers fluid in a wobbling, rotating or oscillating pattern. The movement of the nozzle is a wobbling motion, preferably combined with some rotational motion. The wobbling motion is generated by disposing a wobble inducing member or wobble turbine in the path of the fluid supply. The water flowing over the wobble turbine causes the turbine to wobble. The wobbling turbine then causes the nozzle to wobble or rotate. The moving nozzle can be used as a motor providing a rotating output shaft or ring.
