Stuck chuck insert

>I can't get a chuck insert out of my chuck. I tried clamping the chuck in a wood vise and using a large wrench on the chuck insert, but it won't budge. I recall that a similar problem with a stuck faceplate was solved by putting ice on one part and heating the other. Was it heated with a blow torch? I'm afraid that a blow torch will damage the chuck.
