    I've used acetone on plastic and it didn't harm the plastic but I'm not sure about rubber.

    With epoxy you'll probably have to resort to mechanical means (e.g. file, etc.).

    White spirit/ naptha can work before it's set. It might be worth a try. Once epoxy has set it's pretty resistant stuff.
    If it had to come out I'd use a Stanley craft knife - the kind that hasn't been available for about 10 years. Stanley 10-109 is the nearest to it I can find but that has a retractable blade which might not be too good.

    Sell it to someone who wants a baffle and buy a stock Link?
