I ve researched this and found that the PM machines have parallel wheels. Other machines do not as a result drift is built in and there is nothing you can do to eliminate it. I ve owned probably 5 different bandsaws and every single one of the manual has instructions on adjusting fence for drift.

I’m not so sure about that. I’m pretty sure the mechanism to adjust the position of the blade on the wheel on bandsaws tilts the upper wheel.
