I have been using a Mini-Max 16” for over the past 10 years.
A lot of good info in the Snodgrass video!

The tires are crowned, just not very much. (the crown is cut into the wheels). For resawing I recommend at least a 3/4” blade set up so the center of the blade is centered on the tires. Narrow blades are fine, but more sensitive to where they ride on the wheels.
Get everything set up then try the free hand cut to get an idea of any bias in the cut. The fence can be adjusted for this.
Generally all the setup adjustments stay put on these saws and you can swap through blades without any changes.
