I bought the Uno with the long pins on the back by mistake. With the pins, my board won't mount where I need it to. Is it possible to cut them down or would this damage anything?

Sure, just cut one at a time to keep shock levels down, and do not let conductive debris remain on the Uno.

You need what is known as a side cutter to remove the pins close to the board.

And don't let them fly off at someone, they have considerable velocity.

Also, wear eye-protection (if no eye protection) - just in case.
