What is a double wheeled pizza cutter?

a double wheel pizza cutter is a pizza cutter that has 2 wheels - one behind the other. The advantage of the two wheels is that they go through the pizza in one motion and you don't have to go back and forth to get a clean cut through the pizza.

What is the common width of the steel cutting wheel on generic glass cutters?

I think you meant diameter of the wheel, since the width is basically that of a razors edge. the most common diameter of the cutting wheel is 7/32", unless your tool is made for cutting patterns or circles, in which case the wheel diameter should be 1/8"

My mother-in-law's insinkerator shakes violently when turned on. She believes I broke it when I put some small watermelon rinds down it recently. Any advice?

You cant break stainless steel cutter blade, welded parts and steel ball bearings with water mellon rinds.
Even a metal fork should not break a garbage disposal ... the fork will wedge against the side wall and cause cutter blade to get stuck. Once the fork is removed, no damage is done.

If insinkerator is shaking, then either a bearing has rusted out, or the shaft has finally worn out.
The stainless cutter blade is permanently attached to a steel shaft that goes into the sealed bearing. If the cutter weld is broken, then the disposal will wobble. If the bearing wears out, then the steel shaft will wobble. If the steel shaft is worn down at the bearing, then the cutter plate will wobble. A tiny bit of wobble will cause the disposal to shake. A brand new disposal will vibrate.
Check date of purchase receipt.
Amazon shows warranty is 2 years:
If disposal is 3-5 years old then that is a short lifetime for a solid product like the 1/2 HP.
If disposal is 5-8 years old, that's a good run. 8-12 years is very good.
I wrote tips for replacing disposal from days when I worked apartment maintenance:
We replaced disposals every 6-7 years. Some never wore out. Others went bad right away.

I have a 1984 Chevy Silverado V6 2 wheel Drive. I replaced the fuel filter, since then it continues to leak gas at the fitting to the carb. Have bought 2 rebuilt carburaters and the same thing, it leaks.

The fuel line flare no longer can seal. You might be able to use a tubing cutter to remove 3in of steel fueline with the fitting at a wrecking yard. Use the tubing cutter to cut your old line and use a rubber fuel line hose with mini clamps to re-connect everything.

Why does my garbage disposal keeping locking up? I've checked inside to see if anything is lodging the blades but can't find anything.

Next time it sticks. Vacuum out everything.
See if the cutter wheel is still lodged.
Or if cutter wheel rolls free.
If cutter wheel rolls free after a simple vacuum, then I would suspect the motor is old and weak.
If cutter wheel is still lodged, then check around the edge and see what is stuck.
If there are pieces of metal, then the cutter wheel is probably falling apart bit by bit.

Glass shelve on bottom over grisper is broken Sanyo SR-9510W

You didn't say what size or model Sanyo you have, but the solution is easy. I have a Sanyo under the counter refrigerator in which the glass over the crisper is 1/8" thick frosted glass, 16" by 6 3/4" with the two back corners cut off diagonally. The frosting is simply to prevent you seeing through into the crisper below. It is maybe fifteen minutes work with a piece of window glass and a glass cutter to make a replacement. My full size refrigerator uses 1/4" glass since it is much larger and I have replaced it myself this way. If you don't have a glass cutter -- they are cheap and available in all harware stores -- you should be able to get any hardware store to make the cuts for you. They are accustomed to making custom cuts for people replacing their own windows. The have, and I use, what is known as an oil cutter which is a lot easier to use than the little hardened steel wheel cutters you will get if you buy a cheap one. Those work fine for straight cuts. Oil cutters make curver cuts equally easy to do.
