The worst that can happen; it still won't work. But the fun, the education... priceless! I am sure that is worth alot more than $10.

Oh, and if it does work n he's hooked?... we have another guy we can sell our old broken cameras to..... shuuussssh.
Or, you could say that he has a $10 camera, what a great opportunity to learn how to do it right at minimal investment? The Prontor shutter isn't exactly crap, it merits being cleaned properly. Then he'll have a camera he can actually use with confidence, instead of something frustrating that may work for a few rolls and crap out again.
