secure the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck, making sure it is as tight as possoble. Useing a wood or hard rubber mallet strick the long end of the allen wrench so it turns counter-clockwise. This should loosen the chuck from the spindle enough that you can unscrew it by hand.

if its a reversible drill there will be a screw in the bottom of the chuck, open the jaws as far as they will go and you should see a screw head, it is a left hand thread so put the drill in low speed selector this will stop chuck turning as easily, then turn screw clockwise as your looking at the chuck, when its out put an allen key in and tighten up the chuck hit with hammer now in a anti clockwise direction it should unscrew. repeat in the reverse procedure to fit new chuck....

If the chuck itself slips, you can tear down the outer layers (yes it is a bit brutal)
of the chuck until you reach the inner metal core. You can then try several things;
1 loosen it with a pipe wrench, provided you can get a grip on the axle of the chuck to counter the torque
2 Weld an allen key to the metal core of the chuck and use a firm rapid blow by a hammer to rotate it counterclockwise
3 Dismantle the final shaft with the chuck core, and set it in a vise with aluminium plates to protect it, while you turn the chuck with a wrench or pliers.
4.If there is no senter lock screw inside the bottom of the chuck it may be fitted with a thread locking compound. It will loosen easilier if heated with a heat gun or moderate gas heat.Only supply just enough heat to loosen it, or the hardening of the steel may be compromised.
