what is that? a shaper/moulderr?
have you considered a power feeder or a sliding table attachment to keep the fingers away from the sharp bits?
why is your wood breaking up? are you cutting up knotty stock or poor grade lumber?

I would assume you are using a power feeder on a machine that beasty.

I second Sundowner, my first question is about the wood.

Welcome to LJs
All of the above, plus inspect you wood for defects,install guards,make sure your cutters are sharp,slow down your feed rate.
