If you strike out here, you might ask over at OWWM…those guys know their stuff.

Not sure what DP you have, but that is most likely a JT33 taper the chuck fits on (DP-42 is a Jacobs chuck). The taper should be part of the spindle and not separate from it. If you want to change it, you change out the spindle itself (instructions can be found here).

Open your old chuck completely. look inside and see if there is a screw head. If so unscrew the chuck from the shaft. (left hand threads) reuse the shaft by screwing on a new chuck.
