The picture shift happens when you use an outside host, such as photobucket, and link to it instead of uploading to the LJ server. It’s a long term and ongoing inconvenience. The whole picture can be viewed by right clicking and selecting “Open image in new tab”

My best guess is that you have a lower-line Stanley #3—the “C55” stamping is definitely a Stanley marking. Maybe part of the Defiance line. While having some cost cutting parts versus the premium planes like the Bailey and Bedrock lines, most Defiance can be good users. If you are wanting to use that one, the first step is to get rid of the paint on all metal to metal contact surfaces—frog to bed, top of the frog where the iron rests, where the frog screws tighten down.
