Actually it really sounds like your table is not trued up (flat and squared to the bit).
I had to put on a new melamine surface and used shims made from aluminum cans
Like Joe asked… it is drilled hole always angled the the same side?

The only other thing I could imagine, is that it was dropped at some point and the whole top part is skewed to a slight angle and you’d only know when you plunge the bit. But that is a wild guess.
