SEC-E9 or Xhorse condor for Cutting new 2016 yaris blade

(Quoted) a 2016 yaris all key lost,  I manage to unlock it with va6 lishi and read the barrel but i can’t turn the ignition with va6 lishi. then I bought va8 lishi and voila you can pick and read the ignition. I have sec-e9 cutting machine and I can’t cut the blade.
the only option is 2016 corolla in sec-e9…..8 wqafers depths 1, 2, 3, 4, but I still can’t cut the blade because what I read from the va8 lishi doesn’t match.


Finally, used silca futura machine to cut the blade, the job is done now. but it will be difficult for me to call my buddy just to cut the blade every time. The silca futura is bloody expensive. The next parts answer a question: how to cut this new blade with sec-e9 or other machine?


  1. I have the xhorse condor. There is a CustomKeyTools.
    Create your own key file, and load that in your machine.

Have a look at the condor keycutter thread.

series exists in instacode if your machine can work with instacode or if you can make your own cutting card .



  1. @Manta1600 (DK forum) made quick tutorial how to create new key on SEC-E9z please check it:


Question: I tested with sec-e9 toy51 add manually key turn on door but not ignition ! Have you an idea ?? Please


Answer: 1. you have wrong cuts somehow
2. ignition has been changed
3. door has been changed

I just copy with manual cutting machine most new blades.


For your information: va8? va6? any difference?
When the va6 and the va8 tools were made there was no specific reference for these , all 3 use the same VA2 keyblade .

yes the va8 is for the 1234Q5678H series with 8 cuts , it will also do the daf cf series 7 cut lock as well , it will also do the VA6 6 cut models though will be sloppy decode due to extension .

the question was what key blade as va8 not listed in silca which it wont be as a lishi reference not a key blank reference , the blade is va2 all are listed under VA2 in instacode ;

ic : 1049 for the 6 cut ABCDEF series
IC : 1125 for 6 cut 1234Q5678H series
IC : 1126 for 6 cut 1234Q5678H series
IC : 1423 for 8 cut 1234Q5678H series

not all lishi tool refrences relate to silca references as quite often a tool is developed long before silca assign a key blank reference to it , good examples are ‘

vag2015 8 , 9 and 10 cut


H & Q have no meaning to you if reading lock with a lishi tool , they are values that are used in the dealer code under certain conditions .

when 2 x 4 cuts sit next door to each other they change them to QQ , 2 x 8 cuts sat next door to each other change to HH , a 4 cut and an 8 cut sat next door to each other change to Q and H .

so if you read a lock as 673784 , the manufacturers code would read QH7376 , if entering direct cuts you reverse this to 6737HQ or 673784 both cut the same key

so you can enter Q or 4 and you can enter 8 or H it will still cut the same

Why Condor Mini cannot decode Lexus TOY48 TOY40 keys?

This is the reason why you cannot decode Lexus by Condor mini-xc key cutting machine..

This is the reason why you cannot decode Lexus by Condor mini-xc key cutting machine..

Condor MINI usually decode/cut key as the standard thickness 3mm, if the key is single side(thickness no more than 3mm, such as 2.5mm or 2mm)

then you should add a shim(such as business card) under the key, let the key thickness more than 3mm (around 3mm).

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.

Pictures 4 and 5 perfect working key

Brilliant machine for the money

2) Failure list:

Defu 386A DOES NOT DO “all keys lost”

Use Condor mini to cut FO21, there is some spacing , this photo is cut with 412443.


This is the maximum that i can do


Correct way:

adjust the screw in the back
and tap back of key with plastic hammer like bump hammer to make sure it is fully seated against stop.


Finally, i did hammer the key to fully enter and now Xhorse Condor Mini cuts well !

I have Condor XC-Mini key cutter, at first I have problem with Ford Tibbe F021 key M8 ….

Then turn the key around.

Restart cutting from beginning . So not to damage my machine…

If need to fix this you will have cut away back part off tool holder till there is nothing left on it

(Interesting that demo video only shows first side off key being cut)
