I've broken a bandsaw blade before. I think what happens is that the little piece of wood or metal that falls down the hole gets between the band and the lower wheel drive wheel. That apparently puts a crimp in the blade where it fails/breaks...especially if you have it tensioned pretty tight. Best advice is to keep the gap in the cover plate as small as possible.
