It seems to me that old wood gets harder and harder making it more difficult to machine.

Assuming that your rollers are turning the only corrective action I can think of is to clean the rollers and wax the table. I think rubbing alcohol works, but check your users manual first, and be careful you don’t cut yourself.

Edit: I just thought of something else I’ve heard of. Get a spray bottle and lightly spray the top surface of the board with water.
