Holy smokes, man. Good thing the bit just dropped off.

There might’ve been several contributing factors at play. As Bill said – perhaps you were trying to take too much at once? Even so, I wouldn’t expect that to result with the friggin’ bit head snapping off. Was the bit extremely dull? Cheapish brand? Perhaps you were feeding the board too fast? Was the collet absolutely unequivocally tightened sufficiently around the bit itself?
