HI BILL , The Images and the post by the Kreg Rep.  should work with your K3 , the only other thing you may want to check is the true thickness of the board and make sure the little lip,s on the slider are hooked on the out side  edge of the board  when you drill the holes , if you have every thing set as per Images in post it should work and hold , JIM !!

HI Bill , also a Vietnam vet ,  did you drill the pocket hole on both end,s of the shelf,s ?   If so they do make a short driver bit ,  and you can also use a 1/4 " ratchet and socket to put the screw,s in the left side , also  they make some smaller cordless driver,s  that will help you out , craftsman dose have a few that are not to expensive , hope this helps you out , thanks for your service , JIM !!

Product Reviews

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
