I am on a 18 inch Minimax now. The method does not work with big blades. So are you saying only use the Alex s method with small bandsaws? with a crown?

Plus the Minimax does not have a crown.

I have a MM 16. The tires are indeed flat, but the wheels have a slight crown profile. You can’t really see it unless you put an indicator on it.

With regard to setup. I just square everything up. blade orthogonal to the table top, table top miter slot parallel to the blade, fence parallel to the miter slot, guide bar parallel to the blade.

No drift compensation.
