Here is a video showing how to cut various threads on a centre lathe without setting the compound slide but still using one or both tip flanks.
It's a bit long, probably worth playing at increased speed.

This diagram shows the theory.

Any use to anyone?

Hi Bridie,
I do the same generally but with full form carbide tools I've not bothered and still get excellent results.
