Now cut a notch from the end of the post to just off-center of the hole. Make a second cut as close to the first one as you can without it cutting into the previous notch. It will leave about 1/2mm of material which will fall out when you finish the second cut.

Probably do a better job with either of those. Dremel would be way too slow for my tastes, but a very narrow wheel in a cutoff tool would do the job.

Another way to do this cut is with a Dremel moto-tool or the like and a grinding/cutting wheel.
