Matt, were you going from left to right with the board or right to left? Feed direction changes from the bottom of the bit to the top, on my table setup, I would have pushed that left to right with the set up you described, (though my fence has two wings, and I would not have cut the way you described), sounds like you were climb cutting and the trapped force of the tear out against the fence snapped the bit, because you made the full cut in one pass for the dovetail dado.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
