Are you maintaining consistent contact with the oufeed side of the fence
once enough stock is in contact with it? Assuming everything is straight
& flat as it should be, once enough stock is contacting the outfeed
side of the fence, you should not be using the infeed side to guide the
stock. Is it possible that the teeter-totter you speak of is just some
snipe at the beginning or end of the cut? If so, it may be unavoidable
but you can compensate by using longer stock than the finished size
and cutting to length later.
All that said, though, I would recommend that if you have a halfway
decent tablesaw, you look into one of the methods used for jointing
an edge on the saw. I use a carrier-board and with a good blade can
make a glue-joint quality cut very quickly, perhaps at the most requiring
a pass or 2 with a jointer plane but usually that is not necessary.
Often wrong, never in doubt.
