It is unless there is a tang on the end. What you need to do is thoroughly clean the parts with something like brake clean to remove all the oil and then wipe with a clean paper towel. What I do it put the arbor into the drill press or the chuck onto the arbor and then put a 2x4 on the table and press the parts together or if you have enough room fully retract the jaws and use the block of wood to "tap" the parts to seat them. Let me know if you need more assistance

Testimonial: "Thanks rowdy45176. Your solution was spot-on. I cleaned both sides and them , with the chuck jaws fully retracted, tapped it with a plastic mallet"
If this is a new tool I would take it back and get it replaced. The only other way to eliminate this problem is to determine if it is the spindle or the chuck and replace the defective unit. Warranty works better.

While roughing up with sandpaper might work, but the usual problem that causes a chuck to fall off is a mismatched taper or either the chuck or the spindle has a dirty surface. The tiniest bloom of rust will cause this. Additionally a mismatch of depth will also cause a poor fit. To fit correctly the taper must be correct on both parts and they need to be clean and lightly oiled.
If it is necessary to san these pieces, use a very fine wet or dry paper. I would not use paper beyond 320 and use a light oil such as kerosene or diesel oil rather than water. Check the dept by looking inside at the wear marks. If the inside of the chuck receiver shows wear so close to the bottom that you cannot ascertain any distance between the wear marks and the bottom, the chuck may be bottoming instead of tightening on the taper correctly. You can easily check it with some fine shim material or perhaps three to five thickness of aluminum foil. Cut five thicknesses to fit in the bottom of the chuck (not all chucks have actual bottoms and go clear through) but not on the walls that are tapered. Reinstall, and remove. Is the aluminum foil damaged/show contact marks? If so, did the chuck go on all the way and come off more easily? If so, the problem is bottoming. Bottoming is quite rare but can happen when different than spec chucks are used.
You might also examine the surfaces of both. They should look pristine with no scratches and marks. If not, that could also be the problem. A correct taper fit is difficult to spin, or remove during normal drilling operations.
