You might try this carefully.... get a torch and gently heat the lock. You don't want too hot, just enough heat to get some of the parts to expand a little. Then use some pliers to jiggle the key and keep doing so as the parts cool down. A locksmith friend of mine has used this trick lots of time to free keys the seem stuck. The idea is not to blast too much heat on it, just enough to get some mild expansion.
A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright
