Rick,
  I beleive you said that the knob was Off the shaft.
If so, screwing it IN further might be easier to get it free.
  Also placing the knob on a shaft and heating the shaft
might help.
  Most allen/spline, and torx screws are hard steel where the tool opening cracks apart and digs in, jamming. Near impossible to drill. Straight blade setscrews seem to usually be softer steel and the head flares out. Easier to drill.
 But with one out, maybe that is all you need to refasten it.
  Good Luck,
Bill
