Xhorse M3 Clamp Ford Jaguar Tibbe Key FAQs

 Question:

I just got the M3 clamp for my xhorse dolphin xp005 key cutting machine, for cutting tibbe/f021 keys. I notice there is no option in the app for calibrating the M3 clamp, does this mean it doesn’t need to be calibrated?
Does the machine cut 8 cuts keys? Or just 6 cuts? I believe the machine wouldn’t be able to cut 8.

Answer:
M3 jaw does not need calibrated.  It self calibrates on startup of cutting process.
You are able to decode and cut it successfully without having to calibrate the clamp.
Ford tibbe is 6 cuts some Jaguar is 6 cuts some is 8 cuts.
Cut by bitting, Fo21 gives an option for 6 cuts.   s30 is shorter 6 cuts.
s32 is for the 8 cut jaguar keys.  8 cuts on a xhorse dolphin
