You score the glass with the tiny little wheel. While holding the edge where you started the score up off the work surface an inch or so, tap on the glass at the score with the ball end.

I guess it is becoming a lost art. Google "glazing points".

And if you're cutting a narrow strip off the glass, you can use the little teeth to pry it off. Put a little oil on the wheel and they should work fine.

I also believe the one on the right may be of the brand Red Devil, I have a few old ones and they look similar in the colour and what not.

I remember my dad using those to cut the glass for our casement windows. For some reason, he said it worked better to put a little kerosene on the glass. Anyone heard of that?

Yes, I was taught exactly that, too.

Kerosene is to lubricate the cutting wheel and help keep it sharp. The glass cutting machine we use in the hardware store has that on it (actually, it tells us to keep the wheel soaked in kerosene. We never do.)
