My blade always tried to pull the board away from the fence, if that makes sense. Angling through the workpiece. I eventually determined it was due to drift angle, and adjusted my fence to align with the natural drift instead of square to the blade. This was with a 3tpi 1” resaw blade sawing 12” diameter cherry logs into boards.
HOWEVER it may be something else, I’m fairly new to the BS too, I know there a lot of variables that can be adjusted.
