What kind of saw and sawblade are you using?

Fixer - Yanıt

Manual hacksaw is probably the best choice. Any power tool is liable to burn the plastic and produce fumes which you don't want to be inhaling.

Can i do this to an aluminum extended keyboard usb apple?

appleuserfan - Yanıt

Judging by the position of the cable, the pcb is placed away from the numerical keypad, so I would guess you should be able to do it.
