Anyone mod the forks of their mini so a bottomless portafilter stays put wile grinding?  If I do not keep a hand on it, it will walk off the forks during grinding.  I was looking for a adhesive backed rubber product with a good track record.  Any suggestions?

]My thought was..

Why not get some food grade silicone sealant, put a line of it ontop of each side of the fork and let it dry overnight? It won't look elegant, but I think would work.

Just a thought...

...it is a thought I had not considered, thank you.  I was thinking about a solution that was neater as an uneven surface is not desirable for my purposes.

someone suggested Sugru on this board a while back for another problem, and it would suit your needs as well, I believe.

How about some silicone tubing slid over the fork? I used to have a Vario and I used tubing on it's portaholder. Worked great and didn't look chintzy.

That's exactly what I did on my Mazzer, but only on the "V" shaped bit, and I did need to cut partially through the tube to get it to go neatly round the bend.

I didn't find the portafilter was moving though - I did it because the metal edge was scratching the hard plastic handle of the portafilters I then had.  Current portafilters have rubberised handles anyway, so probably don't need it any more, but it's still there.

Another choice is double sided tape and cut a rubber pad to fit.

You can also try stuff I use to seal up the air handling equipment at the schools I work at. Its a foam material with adhesive on the back, it comes in different sizes so you can choose the size you need. It can be found at any home improvement stores and it comes in rolls. I used some on my home made tamping stand which I made out of 2 inch channel iron it's in my picture next to this post.

used silicone tubing as I had it available in the now. I think it will work fine.

Thanks for the aid, my brothers.
