What speed are you operating the DP at? If you haven’t already, move to a Forstner or a saw tooth bit and use the recommended speed for the bit. Speed can make all the difference in the world depending upon which bit, size, etc. There are several good charts offered by Wood Magazine that shows the types of bits and the various speeds for various diameters. I would double down on Andy’s advice.
