Eliot,
If this is the tool you are talking about, you cold make multiple holders for the associated cutters. I have a friend who has done exactly that.

I tend to use the finest wheel for the bottom of my pieces pretty much exclusively. It's a fun tool to play with.

Another option for end grain work is a chatter tool. This tool features a piece of spring steel that vibrates when it is pressed against end grain. The patterns aren't as repeatable as the Sorby tool, but it is good also.

Good luck and have fun.
