Value of Champion machine tools heavy duty drill press, 5 speeds-model#F001,capacity-chuck 5/8th" spindal JT #3 serial#103447
There are a great many similar items on the market these days at a variety of prices and in spite of the claims very few are truly heavy duty - most are copies of copies from a few manufacturers (usually China) and are label engineered and best suited to the home workshop and occasional user.
A true heavy duty version is very different - very much heavier and with a rack-and-pinion operated tiltable table, a more powerful continuous rated motor and many refinements that suits the machine to continuous workshop use. Such a machine as this would usually cost at least double and most commonly three, four or five times of the common imported type.
The first type has little value as a used machine other than what cash a purchaser can be persuaded to pay for it, in fact if it is bought with the usual accessories; a set of T bolts, a good machine vice and a collection of Morse taper drill bits, the price would more than double, the accessories being worth more than the pillar drill.
The industrial rated tool in good condition does retain a good used value but again it is worth only what the market will pay.
I suggest you peruse a variety of tool catalogues.

Got 2 6095d drills. 1 has retaining screw,1 appears not.is possible? Re removing chuck
Usually drill motors have a reverse (left) thread retaining screw located in the center of the chuck. The chuck however is typically threaded in the normal right hand configuration. Once the retaining screw is removed place a 1/4" allen wrench short end into the chuck and tighten, next strike the allen wrench with a soft tip mallot (counter clockwise while holding on to the drill motor firmly. This should loosen the chuck, then simply unscrew the chuck by hand. Good Luck!
