I am working on something very urgent and need to glue rubber to the end grain of plywood (the edge, where you see the plys.) What adhesive would I use? Also is there a special technique I should use?

depends on the type of rubber, but probably contact cement.

Actually, rubber cement works pretty good for that.

There are two ways to use rubber cement. The paint it on and stick it together makes a less permanent bond. To make the permanent bond, use it much like you do contact cement. Rough up the rubber a bit with sandpaper. The wood should be roughened a bit as well. Put it on both surfaces and let it dry. Then press them together and apply pressure. (Same way you put patches on a bike innertube.) Should hold on well.

I would think contact cement would work fine.
