Though my goal of making a vibrating tumbler be successful is still in the making, I've found a method that seems to work well for propionate users.
A "hot knife" soldering iron (w/ blade attachment) is great for clearing out the lip slot. I wait until I'm done with all my prop coats and then slice right through. Quick trim on the edges with a sharp hobby knife and your slot is good to go... this is especially useful with g10 micarta lips (since the slot needs to be not much bigger than the width of the blade). Anyway, figured I'd pass my tip on.

I guess the other tip would be, WEAR A MASK! it doesn't come across as a real noxious fume, but keep in mind that plastic is burning away... 20 bucks for some respirator filters is the cheapest health insurance you can get. other than that, burn it up
