What happens if the collet releases is the bit falls out and doesn’t
do much damage. I have had it happen a few times. In the
milliseconds as the bit comes out the end of the cutter may
wobble and mess up the work.

In terms of breaking your router or wrecking the bit, the
danger isn’t too great. I would look at the collet and make
a mark on your bit shank and leave the bit 100% inserted
in the collet proper. What happens if the bit is pulled
farther out, I believe, is the collet can get distorted.
