Recommendation 3: condor Mini plus

Condor Mini plus Improvement!!

1) Space between cover and key is bigger…. for XC-MINI many keys with casings like VW flip key will not allow you to close the cover .
2) The screen is designed with adjustable angle. Many time the machine is on a higher / desk and it’s then difficult to operate and see what’s on the screen.
3) Mounting support – to make it easier when mounting the machine on a Mobile unit as you don’t want it flying around in the back of your VAN….

4) The motor has a higher rpm with a lower cutting noise.

Recommendation 5: Defu 368A

1.) Success list

– $79, Defu 368A work fine on ” laser key ” , ordering cutter 2 , 2.5 & 3 mm too .

 

– If you got manual skills you can make good key copy on 368a.

 

– With new market Chinese ” key case + blade” to cutting , mine never fail one copy !

 

lot of locksmith hesitate to buy 368a , they lost lot of money for nothing .
2 philosophy , $ 3000 automatic key cutting ( never money back ) and manual key cutting ( $ 150 to 800 ) to fast money back .

CONDOR XC-MINI for $ 100 price / cutting ( emergency all key lost )
xc002 for $30 price / cutting
368a for $10 price / cutting
Depend of your business

 

– Really cheap and it works good on many types of key.

 

– works like a rocket with titanium drill (bought from ali)

 

– no problems as long as you use good quality cutter, NOT the ones that come with it. I use hss instead of carbide with it, seems to work better. As an aside, I am trying to attach space and depth micrometers to it to cut keys by dimension without depth keys. Not a priority, but would be nice to be able to do that.

 

– I’ve done lots of keys with it. bought the carbide cutters and needed 3 of them for cutting a key. not good at all.

But with titanium cutter is good. I am using it for mobile cutting only. Worth all the money.

 

– use only for hobi and satisfied with this machine.

 

– I think is ok. I own one and I modified the engine. Now it works at 12 v dc

 

– can copy normal key like toyota mitsubishi, and flat keys like bmw and vag etc. check defu key cutter on youtube. For some keys you may need additional clamps like tibbe etc but search defu key cutting and you will see.

 

– I made key for kia pocanto. It is smooth I also ordered separate clamps for tibbe keys and a full set pf cutters.

 

-Doing double sided flat keys buy a universal key clamp and cut it up as in picture 1. (universal clamp won’t do these keys)
drill 2.5 mm holes for clamp screws and use 3mm tap to run threads picture 2.

cut some shims from the supplied steel shims picture 3.

2) Failure list:

Defu 386A DOES NOT DO “all keys lost”

Conclusion:

Car key cutting machines depend on budget and on how many keys it will cut a day , some machines are light use , some are medium use and some are heavy duty use , some are better suited to the back of a van than others , some are built to last forever , some are start up machines with limited life.

Quote DK member’s experience here.

Car key cutting machines depend on budget and on how many keys it will cut a day , some machines are light use , some are medium use and some are heavy duty use , some are better suited to the back of a van than others , some are built to last forever , some are start up machines with limited life.

I have 4 cut to code machines:

Xhorse ikeycutter condor: i could say that with a little more from 2000 a very good choice would be xhorse condor mini. it cuts most keys I’ve needed it to do.

Miracle A6 : light use machine in my opinion , reliable and cuts an accurate key , has a few miscut issues but not many and has proved reliable and well suited to mobile use .

Ninja Laser: medium use machine , cuts perfect keys and is well supported , seems happy on back of van , quality reliable machine that will last

Silca Viper : heavy duty heavy use machine , good on van but big and heavy , mines cut 25000 keys and is still as good as new, cant fault it at all

with machines you must remember that the more they make it do , the less robust it seems to become , I can’t see futura cutting the keys that my viper has and still be alive let alone pristine , so a heavy duty specialist machine will last longer , hold its value more and have a higher resale value .

miracle a5 is a decent machine , but had bugs and issues , is no longer updated or supported , but really cheap at present and a good starter machine for light use.

bd laser is another decent machine that stood test of time and well suited to heavy use

Can’t fault , miracle a6 , ninja laser or silca viper as all have done me proud , all paid back and some , and all still going strong , if i had to pick a favorite it would be ninja laser or viper .

like with anything, with a cut to code machine you get what you pay for , you pay cheap you normally get cheap , it’s a major investment and crucial kit that needs to work to pay back , the better the machine the more reliable and better it will pay back , in my experience you cant get better than keyline or silca , they are the rolls royce of machines , my viper is 12 years old and i could if i sold it still get nearly what i paid for it back then , good machines hold resale value far better .

miracle A6 in my opinion it’s a light use machine , but a decent one.

If you are buying again, which one you’d like to buy?

I have 4 cut to code machines:

Condor mini cutting machine: its ok but has bugs and issues and build quality suggests its not a long term machine, it miscuts some and plays up sometimes, but is a good machine for its cost, but for me its a light use back up unit. I got one from uobdii.com, it well supported, their support is excellent, use it to test ok on following keys:

condor-xc-mini-3

  1. Cut New GM, Coverlet, HU100, PSA Peugeot, Citroen VAT2 key, XC-MINI makes job easier
  2. Do Toyota TOY43 all key lost, save you a lot of time
  3. Cut Suzuki, Mazda (key tooth in ignition lock more than door lock) all key lost, simply by enter the key code
  4. Do Hyundai, Kia, Peugeot, and Citroen all key lost, directly program keys
  5. HU101 works fine, HU92 works fine.
  6. HU66 OK, have to do two passes on each side to get the key to work, same with hu100.
  7. Fix the problem that other key cutting machines cut domestic Honda key not accurately
  8. clio 2 series with m1 clamp all is ok perfect..
  9. panda mj year 2005 cut key ok ..

V8/X6:

V8/X6 Key Machine arrived. Doesn’t show x6 or v8 logo at all, instead it shows ‘Automobile Key Cutting System’. Firmware version is 6.25. Has an on/off rocker switch on the side of the case to use the internal battery.Works fine with the software posted earlier using laptop.

However, didn’t work with PDA, couldn’t find the machine. Although the machine shows the Bluetooth logo on the screen the supplier says it is not supported yet. Decoded and cut a Toyota key and worked fine.

V8/X6 Key Cutting Machine v8 firmware 6.25

It’s working good for decoding if you calibrate it, and also good to cut blank key by code.

If you cut 5 keys/week yes, it’s not bad, if you cut 10 keys/day buy another like condor…

368A Key Cutting:

368A Key Cutting machine is very cheap one. I was wondering anyone have feedback for this one. I have friend and he have this machine, He use her only for hobby and he is satisfied with machine. I want hear someone else bought this.

368A key cutting machine vs. Xhorse Condor key cutting machine
