The porcelain broke while trying to remove #8 (I think is what you were asking about.) Meaning, when I went to remove it, it snapped off right at the point where the nut separate from the tip.
However, on 5 & 7, the nut separated from the tip first, then I broke the plug off, so I could use the tool to push the porcelain into the tip, then used the extractor to pull the tip out. Nothing fell into the cylinder. Before I removed the tip, I vacuumed any chips out, created from using the pusher tool.
Pretty neat tool for the removal. Simple and effective.
Picture is in order of engine position. 1-4 (none broken) then 5-8 (5,7 & 8) broken.
