    I'm having this problem as well, I'm wanting to get a Pan & Tilt head rather then a three way and I can't get the three way head off.

    Take the allen screws all the way out just to be sure. Tighten all the control knobs on the head, wrap it in a bath towel, place the head in a vise and tighten the vise just enough to grip the head. Supporting the legs turn gently twist them. Should come loose just fine.
