Pentax lists one in their webstore and I bought one on ebay called 'Roxsen screw-mount to k-mount adapter'

It was inexpensive and works well and maintains infinity focus.

So I full understand you..

You have a screw mount lens you would like to attack to your Pentax K10D, correct? If so, what I said will help you.

No, I think that he is looking for a K-Mount to screw mount adapter so that he can use a screw-mount 3X converter.

I have never heard of any "backward" type adapters. You may be able to get a couple 1.7 adapters and stack them if you need 3X. I have seen 1.4X, 1.5X, 1.7X, and 2X. But I haven's seen a 3X in K-mount lately.
