There are no lack of locksmith tools, when you need to constantly update something. The first thing is that are you ready to constantly invest in equipment? Because many people think that they bought it once and all. I am aware that electronics evolve and that the tools change without cessation, thereafter there is no problem to invest again if necessary.
With this tool u can cover very big amount of locksmith job for start ..

Some manual side cutting machine (cheap)
My first machine is Dolphin 007, belive me, no need to improve any skills , i cut almost 50 keys till now and every key is good.
i also want to buy Defu machine but thank to god i did not buy. my frend buy defu, it is ok, he work with those machine but if you have money buy Condor 007
What about Defu 368?
The very first machine I bought was a Defu – the dearer of the two laser key versions. It worked for laser keys, and it was really just for personal use – it was cheaper than buying two keys from the dealer. It needed a bit of fettling, and I learned a bit using it.
As a learning experience, or to do a few keys, or as a backup machine, it’s well worth the money.
As a serious commercial key cutting machine? No.
