+1 to the above

Also, I’ve had luck raising the blade to just above the table (maybe 1/32-1/16”) and making a scoring cut,then raising the blade tot he full cur depth and running it through again.

Get a negative rake blade with 90 teeth, extreme angle alternate bevel, and you will eliminate that issue. Amana makes that blade. Bought it 10 years ago, and have been cutting clean veneer cuts ever since. It is supposed to be for cutting melamine, but works on pretty much whatever you want to cut.
Doulbe cutting your wood also works, but now you’ve sent the wood through twice with a double chance of screwing it up…. I did it for about 20 years before I got a NR saw blade. ...... Jerry (in Tucson)
