I put a board between the fence and the board that I'm cutting, so
that the back edge of the board to be cut is at, or a bit forward of
the center line of the blade.
Make sure the blade is sharp, clean and that you cut on the pull

Not sure if they still sell it, but Sears had a router attachment called a
"Molding Maker". I have one and have used it twice and it does work.
I've also used my RAS with a dado stack, then ripping the finished profile
to the desired thickness.
Make a jig similar to a box joint jig on your table saw. It will have
an index pin the same width as your dado blade, and a cleat rides in
the miter groove. I made 700 dentils, but I ganged four pieces of
stock to save time. This was the one time in 15 years I had to turn
my saw 90 degrees to accomodate the length of the molding. It took an
hour to setup and make the jig, and less than an hour to actually make
70 feet of molding. You should get details of a box-joint jig in many
woodworking books or do a Google search.
