You mentioned you hold the board down in front of the cutter head. While you must start out doing that MOST of the force should be applied against the fence and on the the out feed side of the cutter head. I don t know if the problem or you machine but poor technique will result in poor results.
It is of course imperative the the fence be 90 degrees to the bed. I use artists or drafting triangles.
Good luck.

I assumed by “in front of the cutterhead” you meant on the outfeed side. If that’s not the case, then by all means, do what jumbojack said.
