So here's what I did;
There is enough space inside the key cylinder (at the broken end) to insert a collar which I made from aluminium. Secured the collar to the remaining unbroken part of the cylinder with a 4-40 countersunk machine screw and locktite. Ends of the collar were trimmed/filed to the same dimension as the original slot.
Took me about an hour, faster than shipping and I get to keep my single key. Saved a few bucks to boot.

If you look at this pic the two pieces are swedged together(center of where the piece broke off). Problem is getting this apart and if you do how do you put it back together? This is why a locksmith cant get to the key tumblers. IF they had a new piece to swedje together after changing the tumblers then it may be possible.

Yup that was it, cylinder was broken just like the one in the photo. Thanks for the responses.
I super glued the cylinder back together for now until I can get a replacement.

Not the switch the ignition lock cylinder! What happens is the end of it breaks off and that's why you cant stat it.

Ignition switch start position
ignition switch turns to the run and acc positions, but won't go to the start position.
I don't believe there is any sort of electro/mechanical interlock on the switch but wanted to confirm.
Done all the usual coaxing with the transmission interlock and steering wheel but switch won't turn beyond the run position.
Help will be appreciated
