Not uncommon, but I suspect that they were usually in pro darkrooms. Mine (for which I possibly paid too much but no regrets) had been property of the Defense Department.

My anecdotal feeling is that many pros were clearing chemical photographic facilities on their way to digital 5 or 10 years ago and that phenomenon is now over, hence not so much gear for sale.
