Most of the chucks that I replace are seized or missing one of the jaws. I have a variety of ez-out bits and jam one into chuck then turn with air impact(you can use an old bolt, grind to taper with groves to fit jaws, you can be creative here, then use socket with impact ) . Works most every time. I do not like to use high torque if there is a gear ruduction drive. If I feel that I may damage gears, I will use a dremel with cutoff wheel and cut the chuck down both sides to remove outer cover, then cut into threaded part of chuck untill close to thread. Insert stout screwdriver into cut and crack open whats left of chuck. Takes about 30 minutes and may use two or three small cut-off wheels. Good luck

I would chuck a good size steel pin, unlock and swivel your table over to the side, clean both the taper and the socket with brake cleaner spray or electrical contact cleaner (or even Fondu Alcohol Fuel will work) to leave no oil film at all on the parts. Also run a stone around on all the male part taper surface to check for invisible burr spots and dents left when it was tossed around during manufacturing. Dry every bit of cleaner out by waiting or blowing with a hair dryer. Then tap it in with a piece of wood against the steel pin bottom. Professional shops can make the taper match so it will transmit 5 HP or more without spinning or falling out, but many workers today just don't get the quality training or buy the measuring tools to be able to do that. My Chineese machine didn't even have the draw bar threaded with the matching thread to lock in the chuck in for it's milling head, so you know they are not a detail oriented outfit. Great Guns and all facing the one way!

The chuck on 99% of the drill presses is just a press fit. The end of the spindle where the chuck goes on is slightly tapered to hold it on. Make sure the end of the spindle and inside surface of the chuck are very clean. With the motor off, raise the table high enough so you can still get the chuck on the spindle then turn the handle to lower the chuck against the table and press it firmly against the table to wedge the spindle in the chuck. There shouldn't be any need for anything more than this.
