I do a lot of glass jewelry that requires very small pieces of glass.  I find any cutter with a head that swivels to be more difficult to use than a fixed head, but the fixed head cutters I have found are usually steel wheels with no reservoir.  Anyone aware of a straight handles cutter, with a fixed wheel carbide cutter and oil reservoir?

I have a cup with a small, oil saturated rag in it.  I store my cutters by placing them cutter side down in this cup.  I never put oil in them.  Works for me.

My straight handled cutter has a fixed head or swivel head option if I take out the head and flip it around....hard to describe. Most do this, are you sure yours doesn't? I also do not use a reservoir but instead the cup with an oiled rag.

I do it the same way as Knight.   I like the feel of the larger handle but never use it for oil.    Loosen the screw on the head and rotate it then tighten it down to have a fixed head cutter which doesn't use the oil reservoir.
