My recommendation would be a die grinder or Dremel tool with a small diameter, drum sander. This will give a nice nearly finished edge with no sharp corners that could result in a crack. The notch doesn’t have to be small. It just needs to be small enough that it doesn’t get too close to the next Adjacent screw holes.
Opinions, information, and comments, are my own unless stated otherwise.
