I just picked up a Nikon Super Zoom and a Yashica Super Zoom 800 Electro off ebay. Both cameras appear to be working mechanically and the lenses are clean but they are missing the filter key on both. From the manuals they appear to be about the same. Any idea where I can get filter keys for them? I don't know if they are a standard size for these cameras and nothing came up doing a search for the part.
I tried inserting a coin and other things but it doesn't seem to work.

Use a stiff piece of plastic (e.g. old credit card) and cut it a little shorter than the width of the slot. Keep it a couple of inches long to start (you can trim it down after if you want, once you see how deep the slot goes). Push it in until you hear a solid click.

Thanks Rick, that's what I did. It looks like it would stay in under it's own weight if it was metal so I'll attach something to the upper part of the plastic I used. I had some questions about the Tobin telecine units but I'll put it in another post.
