Just for curiosity I’d try ripping a longer piece. It might be too easy for the 8” piece to follow imperfections in the fence face. If a longer board still has the issue then the problem may be elsewhere. Also, does the back of your fence clamp down or is it free to move? It could be slight variation in how much pressure you are putting against the fence depending on your hand position on the table. If the back of the fence can move ever so slightly then that could be accounting for your .005 difference as you push through the cut.
