    I have a small flat file that I fold sandpaper around. You can usually find them at any hobby store.

    I have a set of jewelers files that I use to get into tight corners like these.

    Yeah, a small flat file is what you need. If that's not an option, get something flat and square like a paint stick and wrap sandpaper around it.

    I used a dremel to get most of it and to refine the edge I took something the size of a credit card but 4 or 5 thick and wrapped it in sand paper. This way I had a solid flat edge of sand paper. Worked well for me.
