In both cases the nut was definitely fully on the threads, as the arbor is long enough, even when using the arbor flange (washer). So I’m not sure why I wouldn’t want to use the arbor flange?

“Brake” may be poor terminology, but when I turn off the saw the blade comes to a full stop within 3-4 seconds; something is causing the deceleration, and that I guess exerts some counter-clockwise (ie loosening) force on the arbor flange/nut. But that would happen every time you turn the saw off ….. shouldn’t loosen the nut.
