Prices seem a little high given that many of those items are available new for about the same money.
  • Zeiss folders!!!
  • I would be mildly interested in the Kindermann daylight tanks if the lids and traps are in good order. They are soooo leak resistant.
  • I have a Beseler CT20 timer. It is a sweet unit.
  • Oh...Photix temp control...be still my beating heart...
OK, enough stimulation for one day...

And to think, 10-15 years ago you couldn't give your darkroom equipment away. That may be a wee bit of an exaggeration but
I do remember seeing many, many once very expensive enlargers being offered for peanuts. Or offered for free to anyone willing
to haul away the bulky beasts. Or sitting in a dumpster, presumably because no one answered the ad for a free enlarger.

Who uses this type of equipment these days? I have actually thought about doing film, but decided against it. Did you notice the ad's contact information: Respond by telephone only. Do not text or email. Please call at 2 zero 8-Nine 39-2 six 32.

I’m buying a complete darkroom tomorrow, and I’m very excited. Maybe I’m overpaying, but they never seem to come available around these parts, and this is a complete 4x5 setup including camera and enlarger for $500. He has holders for 35 and 6x7, but not sure about lenses, so I may have to buy a few enlarger lenses, but I am looking forward to removing computers from the photography process. (I spend 8-10 hours a day working on computers, the last thing I want to do for a hobby is use a computer.)

There was a lot more available a decade or so ago. I got a 4X5 enlarge for $30 that had been donated by the city police, got a darkroom for the sink for 30 bucks, 4 current top end enlarging lenses for free and a 57 Elwood enlarge for free.

I see nothing unusual here, you should see Christopher Burkett's darkroom O.O The man shoot large format and do magnificent 40x50 cibachrome colour prints.

Film processing is very rewarding, it always makes me smile when I open the tank and see the negative.
