How do you repair a Key Clyinder

I have a 1995 Chevy S10, V6. I believe my Key Clyinder is broken, i have been attempting to turn the key for hours and the wheel is locked and yet the key wont turn. Any ideas on the tools I will need to replace this? Or any advice. Thanks.

Sometimes the wheel locks under pressure from one direction or the other, causing the locking mechanism to jam. Try moving the wheel slightly in either direction while trying to unlock it.

Have a locksmith do it - cheaper than the tools you'd need to buy.
