I'm seeing this more and more. In recent auctions for digital cameras,
I noticed first-time bidders were frequent, and drove the auction
price to significantly more than one would pay at Wallyworld, for
example. I suppose you could look at feedback to see if first-timers
are often winners of a given seller's sales.
Having worked in auction houses for several years, I was surprised at
the number of tricks both buyers and sellers use....al

I've bid on two of the big Ditting 1403 grinders recently on ebay. One auction is ending today. Oddly, in both instances it is first-time bidders with (obviously) no history who seem to be the high bidders. I find it sort of odd that someone who has never purchased any equipment on ebay would jump into a very specialized auction for their first purchase. Not everyone needs a 230volt, 15amp, 3phase grinder. I haven't bought much on ebay, only coffee equipment, so I'm asking those of you who buy regularly if this would seem unusual or not.
Hmmmm. I did go back and check, al. There is no history at all on this seller, but I was outbid on a previous grinder. They have an extensive page of how to pay and return policy etc. It seems odd to me that the previous sale of a grinder like this one was won by a first timer and now doesn't show up on the feedback or previous listings. It must be me. I must be over-cautious.
