You should be using a dedicated rip blade for that application. The ATB of a crosscut or combination blades s teeth create bending stresses in the blade when cutting on one side of the blade. The flat top bevel of the rip blade is not subject to these same forces. Change the blade.

The feather board is used to hold the stock against the fence for rabbeting, dados, etc. NOT for RIPPING.
