I've found a Arca type clamp on ebay which seems to be supplied with the same "washer". I've questioned what it's for and now I wait with baited breath

As soon as I saw the Sunwayphoto link it confirmed what I said earlier it's a special tool for adjusting parts that are assembled similar to lenses.

They probably include them with all their stuff even if they aren't needed. I got one with a pano head along with another plainer tool. It's used on the centre as shown here. The alternative is find a coin that fits. It also adjusts the 1/4" and 3/8" bushes.

Thanks for the link Algernon. That's what is confusing me, unlike the Sunwayfoto head my clamp does not have the slotted metal bush in the center. Mine is held together by two allen screws.

Does the head have a female threaded part anywhere, e.g. where it fits onto the tripod? Sometimes a threaded insert adaptor is needed to enable the head to fit onto the tripod's spigot if it is of a different size. There seem to be a few common sizes around.

In such cases you might reasonably expect one or two adaptors to be included with the head or tripod if they are of good quality.

The head was supplied with a std. 3/8" to 1/4" bushing, The spare part, as Algernon identified, is a tool for inserting and removal of this and other parts

It is part of a robot's upper denture. It fell into the box when the packaging robot sneezed.
