Fortunately I do not have that problem as long as the blade is 90 degrees to the table the fence parallel to the blade. I to have used my saw to resaw thick stock it often shows a slight line where the 2 cuts meet but we are talking thousandths of an inch and I chalk most of that up to the way I held the board against the fence. You are missing half of the usefulness of your fence if you must mess around with shims, I am constantly moving my fence ahead and back, as well as changing to the low profile side and using it on the other side of the blade. I would contact Delta even if the fence is old it should not work that way. If they won’t help you I would get a good double cut milling file and rework the surface of the cast iron part of the fence it could be just a burr or some thick paint causing the problem.
