    I second that. But its not worth it when it can be taken right away from you no matter what he paid. Not to mention buying something with removed serial numbers is going to be hard to explain to the authorities and chances of facing charges would be very very likely.

    Fist get your refund from the seller, then contact 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??
    And if you contact police and it is reported stolen you are out of your money, they will return it to the person it was stolen from, and then you are out whatever you paid for it.

    There is never any good reason any SN is removed from anything.
    NOPE! Only reason to remove serial numbers is because its stolen. Why would anyone want to remove serial numbers? No other reason I can think of. I mean with that being known, I think I would want to get my money back for two reasons. One if it was ever serviced. It would suck to be something legit on your end, and then be nailed for recieving stolen goods. Its just not a very good thing. I dont know any other reason anyone would want to remove SN's. And it if could possibly be indentified they would take it right off you and give it back to the original owner. But I am no expert.

    Time for a new username!

    I agree with the other posters. That machine is probably hotter than a two-dollar pistol!

    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.

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

    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

    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.
