6095d chuck, seems to have no retaining screw.is this a POSSIBILITY?
it is possible that a chuck is spun on if it has fine threads. most likely if the chuck is frozen you would have to use spanner on key hole and put the outer ring in a vise. It should loosen up. Sometimes I use a pipe wrench and the large channel locks to spin the chuck open. Most have a screw but it can get rounded over which would require drilling it out.

Need replacement pulley for a Delta DP350
I had the same problem and searched extensively for a replacement
pulley, but couldn't find one. I thought I'd try something else and
began looking at Love Joy variable speed pulleys. They function the same
way and are much heavier duty that the cast pewter used by Delta. The
one problem, they are EXTREMELY expensive. Tried ebay and found a number
of different brands and sizes. I recently found and purchased a Reeves
variable speed pulley 850C 5/8" bore & 5" OD off of Ebay for just
under $30. Well, the motor shaft is just under 5/8" but larger than
9/16" so I was going to use a metal 1/2" ID x 5/8" OD spacer as a shim
and file the inside down to the motor shaft diameter, which would
definitely work. Fortunately I had an old 1/2 HP motor from an old
drillpress and it had a 5/8" shaft. Dropped the Reeves pully right on
and mounted it on the DP350 and it ran like a charm. It's a little off
of alignment and I had to cut a hole in the top cover for the Reeves
pulley to protrude out an inch or so, but other than that it works
great. My only fear is that the front pulley might explode now. Guess
I'll have to wait and see. I'll bet there'll be a lot of searchers for a
5" OD variable speed pulley on ebay! Hope yours works as well as mine!
