This is the Snodgrass video I watched when I first got my band saw.

The bit about aligning the deepest part of the gullet to the center of the wheel had my old band saw humming in no time once I did that.

That is the only thing I disagree with Snodgrass on and can be confusing. He talks about centering the gullet on the wheels because they are crowned. Not all band saws have crowned wheels. My Laguna 1412 does not, as confirmed by Laguna. That is why Laguna says to center the blade on the tires. My 3/4” Resaw King would hang off the back of the wheel if I did that. No drift with any thickness of blade when it’s in the middle of the tire.
