Perhaps shollow passes, or maybe 'backrouting' will help. It has worked for me during similar applications. Either way, good luck, I'm sure one of these guys has an answer if my suggestion doesn't work.

Hi woodpecker

PJack is right, taking smaller cuts will help BUT you may want to try

Shear Angle Flush Trim Bits

2 flute, carbide tipped with totally enclosed ball bearing guides.
The shear angle cutting flutes produces a smoother cut than the traditional straight fluted bits.

Instead of chopping at the wood fibers at a 90º angle, the shear angle design allows for a smoother shear angle, slicing cut.
Use this bit to eliminate tear-out problems from routing end or cross grain on very hard woods.

To repair the stock ,this works for most rib outs.

You'er Welcome woodpecker

If you can get this one also
Spiral Flush Trim Bit
http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/bt_solid.html


They also work great for what you are doing and for making templates :)
They will stay sharp for a long time :) and cut very clean in all types of wood.
