First rule out issues with material:

1. If the wood is binding past the blade, use a splitter or wedges to keep the kerf a apart.
2. If the wood is binding as it passes thru the blade, you are probably dealing with a curved edge against the fence. It the wood is slightly bowed, keep the concave surface against the fence.

Most likely you re asking too much of the saw.

If you can find a bandsaw mill, the can stand the boards on edge and gang cut a whole bunch at once. That s the way I would go if possible.
