Once cured, most epoxies are pretty well impervious to most commonly
encountered solvents, but surely there is some chemical that will break it
down. Is anybody aware of a solvent that will "dissolve" cured epoxy resin so
that it can be easily removed from wood? Some particular brand of paint

To reply, eat the taco.
I know for a fact from personal experience (1982) that methylene
chloride will attack & soften epoxy.
Whether or not you can now purchase this nasty stuff is another
btw heat epoxy to +160F and it be easily scrapped off.
If you know you are going to remove the epoxy such as in a hole, use a
release agent in the hold before applying the epoxy.
Permatex makes an epoly type thread repair kit. You put the product in
the hole with the damaged threads and coat the bolt or screw that will
fit in the hole with an included release agent. Put the bolt or screw
in the filled hole and let cure and then screw out your bolt or screw.
