I lock the spindle quite a bit, sometimes when carving, sometimes sanding. Since the PM will only lock in two places I use the pin in the indexing holes to position it close to where I want to carve. There is no significant force on it so the indexing is fine for this.

I lock every time, of course when removing chucks with the wrench. I've got the metal slide that holds the spindle lock button down that I use on occasion.
