So, what if you take a board that s longer than the fence with a known-flat reference edge and rip it but stop the cut before the back of the board goes past the front of the fence then carefully turn the saw off while holding the board in place. If you do that and get an equal width cut all the way, it ll tell you that what s happening is the trailing corner is riding the dip in the fence. If not, then it s something else.

I didn’t note this. I’ll admit the thought that stock was running into the blade was what caught my eye.

Seeing the OP saying this isn’t the case. I would say this is a smart move going forward.
