    Default It's a stolen machine.

    As long as the seller can not provide clean titles of ownership of THIS machine and serial numberthe only conclusion is that it has been stolen from a fellow welder and it disabled him from putting bread on his table. Bring it back to the seller and get a full refund or clear and verifiable paperwork for it.

    The right thing to is supply that engine serial# to Miller, find out what the true serial# is. Find out if its reported stolen. If so then try and get a refund from the seller, then report him to the police.

    The problem for you if it indeed is stolen, is that you can go to jail possessing stolen mechandise. I mean who buys a machine without a serial # in the first place??

    I always get a dated and signed by seller receipt on anything I buy. I hope you did. A check with welder written on it is not very specific. I'm sure it was cash anyway. Less protection without bill of sale. It doesn't hurt to also check his ID

    I may be proven wrong but my guess is the OP is now fearful he's likely sitting on a hot machine and we probably won't be hearing back from him.

    I agree. As long as it works, they may keep it dreading ever having it go to a registered Miller shop.

    I bought a CST280 on eBay a while back when I was still pretty ignorant to machines. The SN was gouged off the liable on the back.

    The seller played dumb, then gave me a full refund. The transaction was reported to eBay.

    There is never any good reason any SN is removed from anything.

    Default Serial Number missing

    After having my TB 302 stolen I was pi$$ed off. If this were my machine I would want it back. The right thing to do is go to local law enforcement to see if they can track the serial number down. Hopefully this member is a standup guy and will do the right thing.
