If you tell them that you'll record it as a demo, sure. Then give them full rights to all the songs. That way they can use it as a tape to send to places to get shows, bigger deals, etc. It could help them in a lot of ways.

Has he even specified that he has any experience whatsoever engineering, producing, mixing or mastering?

Well my recording quality isn't too terrible, I plan on showing them a sample of guitar tracks I've recorded and hope they're gullible enough to believe it's worth 20/h

Don't be a dick and ruin it for them, even if you do dislike their music.

Well, it was implicit he had/has some level of experience with recording.

He's stated he has old band demos and that he ...y'know...has recording equipment

This, too.

Accept their money and give them the best service you can offer with your current equipment.

It's funny that I was in the same position as you when I was 17.
It was a shitload of work to get them to sound good.
Had to redo all the guitars and bass myself.

They ended up not using anything I did because I told them it was impossible to make a 14 year old trying to scream sound good.

Yeah, but then TS gets HIS hoard of 14-15 year olds to jump them back with weapons. Then they go to each other's schools at lunch time and stir more shit up. That's how high-school works right?

Being teenagers they are going to run out of money before they finish recording an entire full length EP, then it will be you that will be the one who gets ripped off. More then likely once you reach that point where you say if you dont have anymore money we cant continue recording, or if they come to their senses and realize how much cash its actually gonna be you might end up with nothing at all but a whole lot of time wasted.

With this is mind, you don't sound too old or mature either, if you really want to be a good producer suggest to them the power of singles, or a demo. What someone needs at that point of their career is some recorded material to expose themselves to the public but don't have enough of a following to record a full length and get enough sales done to break even. This is where the demo comes in, record 3-5 songs at that price or even give them a flat rate per song if you want to guarantee it will get done, and they can put these on their facebook/bandcamp/reverbnation/myspace, and hand them out for free to everyone they know on a blank dollar store cd.

Two/three/four years from now when people know who they are, and there more stable as a band, they can use money they make from their own jobs to record a full length and spend some extra on a better engineer (someone who actually knows the right word for what he's doing), and presentation (booklet, cd art, band logo, etc.)

If you were somehow serious in your approach to music/being a producer you'd see it as a challenge and go in for it wholeheartedly to try and make it work even though they might not be the best musicians nor the genre you prefer. Seeing as you don't tells me a lot more about you and your ambition to become a producer than them as musicians.

Establishing yourself as a producer will hardly be easy and you can't expect to be able to only produce bands that are brilliant and from the genres you love the most. If you expect it to be like this you might as well stop trying already.

^ Nail on the head right there. I have been producing for a couple years I started when I was 22. I love making all sorts of stuff with my equipment, rap, metal, raggae, country. Having an open mind will take you alot further.
