No, much smaller. Best guess is that the wide part at the top is about 8mm in diameter. I'll try to shoot another pic here in a bit. Otherwise, I'll reveal it and we can move on.

By way of hints:
60s vintage
Photographic
Used any time the main object is in use.
Not a charger, but is electrical in use.

Okay. Widening the view a little. In operation, the original bit requires the second silver bit.

I've got one more wider view that will probably reveal it; if nobody hits overnight I'll post that in the morning. If that doesn't do it I'll pull the plug.

Back case release (the little silver button is the locking mechanism) to open the back of a camera to remove the film reel
That's actually a pretty good guess; pretty cold, but pretty good.

Ah well. The reason I thought this might be easy was I've posted two other pics from this camera; one of them maybe twice.

The isolated item was the meter switch, which was why I said the one guess was getting warmer.

Next!
