According to the manual/parts diagram, that press uses a pretty standard Jacobs chuck with a JT-33 taper – it should pop off with a bit of persuasion. The spindle is also easily removable, but you certainly did it the wrong way :(

Chuck wedges. They’re cheap. Or make your own with some scrap and a grinder.

They is usually a hole in the spindle to knock the arbor with chuck attached out with a wedge. Once that’s out. Then you separate with chuck wedges.
