I agree with several points made earlier: the starter pin (if it’s a curved piece the fence won’t help, but it would be better for a straight trim), less bite is always good (though I don’t really consider 1/8” on a 3/4” piece too much), check the grain of the wood, and speed the router up to a halfway speed (~15,000 rpm). I do disagree (a lot) with the gloves suggestion….good luck with your effort.
