Depends how much your time and money is worth.

Is $15 worth your your time and effort?

+1 Surprisingly, these really cheap derailleurs in mediocre condition sell. But Jim's estimate is about right. Is your time and effort worth it? Myself, I have a similar Simplex in that condition, and I am holding it as a possible donor.
