I have found something good about key cutting machines, including Xhorse Condor xc mini, Miracle A7, Viper, Ninja laser, V8/X6 key cutters. This post would help you to buy a good key cutting machine, most suitable for anyone in need.

First, you need to know- How much difference of Condor xc-mini vs Miracle A7 vs Viper vs Ninja laser vs V8/X6

Condor xc-mini is a good budget machine , more suited to the workshop than mobile due to size and weight. it has some bugs , some issues and some gaps , but the quick and easy update for lifetime plus wonderful function are the scoring points. this for what it costs, on the whole a decent machine for the money.


A useful tip with details:

 Miracle A7 is a reliable machine , has a few bugs but reliable as a light use machine , ideal mobile on a van and space saving .


 Viper is a heavy machine and can play up in cold , but is a great heavy duty machine that will give a lifetime of reliable use and receives lifetime updates and as Silca is normally up to date.


 Ninja laser – excellent machine , nothing better for me on sx9 keys , laguna 3 , megane 3 , new clio cards using 1234Q5678H series and decoding and cutting clio 3 keys , fast reliable cutting that allows you to pick various styles of cut as well as adjust to half cuts etc , the software can take getting used to due to the functions available on it , adds cylinder keys to your services too , its a well built machine that is like silca updated for life free.

Most will cut a tibbe key on a clamp , but none will in my view cut a perfect tibbe key , a stand alone option will always cut a better key and far quicker too.

 V8/X6 key cutting machine is a starter machine for very light use and build quality is poor in comparison , i had an x6 to play with for a few months , condor will last longer and be more reliable of the 2 , its at least being supported and updated which is a big plus and is a far superior build quality to the x6 which at best is a hobby or starter machine .


It isn’t always 100% accurate , but the find biting function on Condor is useful if you don’t have instacode to hand , and is a useful addition that makes the Condor more useful.

4. Unlimited access to the doors you want to open

You can choose a package according to what you need, so you’re not subscribing to features that aren’t relevant to you. And you’ll be able to use that information as often as

6. Transponder, Remotes & Diagnostic

InstaCode contains a huge amount of useful information about the immobilizer systems of vehicles. Collected by actual locksmiths, InstaCode’s Transponder information has several different types of information;
General system overviews – this can include anything from a generalized description of how the system works (great for fault finding) to the location of the immobiliser ECU.
Transponder Parts – this is a list of known parts from various aftermarket manufacturers (and OEM) that can be used with a vehicle.

Diagnostic Information – this is information that is useful when connecting to the vehicle with a diagnostic device; Information such as the OBDII connector location or which dongle to use with you MVP; and on-board Procedures – this can include the steps to program addition keys, erase keys or even reset the immobiliser system after it has been “locked”.

7. Find Bitting and Wafer Swapper

The Find Bitting feature is the locksmith’s silver bullet! Often referred to as the “Fill” feature, InstaCode will search through an entire code series for the matching codes when given any number of the known cuts! This is a “must have” for any locksmith who makes keys to vehicles. The feature enables the creation of keys to operate all the locks on a vehicle without the need to disassemble every lock!
An advanced feature of this allows for the searching of “one up also” depths; searching for two possible depths in a position. This is perfect for use with lock readers/decoders.

Even when multiple keys can operate the known cut, the Find Bitting feature will generate a “Cutting Tree”. The “Cutting Tree” is a list of the possibly correct keys, sorted into an order that minimizes the number of key blanks that need to be used to cut and treat every possible key combination.
Who has ever needed to rekey a lock? Almost every locksmith! But how many rekey the lock to a new code that is valid? With the Wafer Swapper feature, a new code can be calculated for you that will use all the parts that are already in use; with no need for additional parts from pinning kits or wafer kits. And you can be certain that the original key will not work!

8. Car Openings

InstaCode’s vehicle opening information is vast. Written by actual locksmiths, it provides useful tips and ideas that are applicable to the vehicle in front of you. Whether it is a simple as pulling the inside handle,

spiking the green wire or simply so difficult that you need specialist tools, InstaCode will point you in the correct direction. It’s like having access to decades worth of locksmith experience on your phone!
