      Out of curiousity, what are you doing that requires a hand on the spindle while
      tightening the collet? I have one hand on the wrench, the other on the spindle
      lock pin I made per LMS design
      (http://littlemachineshop.com/Projects/SpindlePin.php), and that tends to do it.

      I have found, though, that with enough tension on the wrench I can hold the
      spindle pin in without holding it - pops out about a foot when released... @:-)

      Graciously,
