Don Lancaster covers many aspects of real world surplus auctions
at his website, http://www.tinaja.com/, when he talks about
sources for surplus test equipment etc.

He mostly talks about government/military/edu surplus (where the terms
are up-front but not always friendly and in the case of the gov't
and military are completely inflexible), and has a couple
notes about sleazeball commercial surplus auctioneers/practices.
