Easy button for thinset removal:
Oscillating tool with a carbide finger rasp (looks something like a pointy oval) while running a vacuum. The thinset will melt away from the vibrating grinding action and the vacuum will keep it clean. Keep a relatively gentle touch and you’ll have a lot of precision control on the removal.

It’s still going to take patience. There is a larger triangular carbide rasp that could potentially speed things up a bit, but you don’t have quite as much precision control as with the finger rasp.
