SOURCE: drill chuck removal
The screw should be left hand thread and the chuck is normal thread. The 'workshop' way to remove the chuck is to remove the screw (done). If the jaws are still working then clamp a sturdy allen key in it and whack it against a workbench to unscrew the chuck. If holding the drill in the normal position you would stand with the workbench to your left and whack it down on that. If the jaws aren't working then you can grip the body in a vice and use large pipe grips or stiltsons on the chuck. Also check to see if the chuck spindle will accept a thin spanner to hold it, as this is a slightly more caring way to brace the spindle. Then you can can hold the spanner in the vice and use the allen key in the chuck and unscrew it that way.

First open the chuck jaws and remove the LH chuck retaining screw. After that find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck. Put the shorter end in the chuck and clamp down on it. Put chuck on a block of wood or workbench with the long end at about a 30 degree angle so you can hit it counterclockwise with a hammer. It might take a couple hits but it will come off.

If you have the 6408 as listed the spindle is threaded and you are correct there is no retaining screw. What you would need to do is find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity 3/8" and insert the shorter end in the chuck and tighten. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and position the long end at about a 30 degree angle in the counter clockwise position and strike it with a hammer, this might take a couple hits. If this is not a 6408 let me know and I will look at the tool for you and see what you got.

Put the screw back in the chuck, tighten it up then back it out 1 turn. Take a punch, put it in the chuck and give it a quick hit with a hammer. That should do the trick.
