I have been making rubber pads for my tall chairs from 3/8” thick strips of rubber cut from stall mats. These protect the bottoms of the char legs and prevent them slipping on concrete. I needed a quick bond so have been using TB Instant with accelerator for the last few chairs. Will this hold up [glueing black rubber to Doug Fir end grain] ?

Regular rubber cement seems to work real good for me doc.

That is just superglue and will probably eventually break. The accelerator is a solvent and can possible eat away what you spray it on. For gluing difficult items i find nothing is better than Shoo Goo, it takes a few hrs to dry but it leaves a hard rubber like bond that seems to stick to anything.

Another one called “GOOP” works great also.

I use readily available “Super Sliders” available through Lowe’s. Pre-drill a small hole on each leg bottom and gently hammer them in. I like these because they swivel enough to accommodate the non-perpendicular legs to the floor and they chair slide on felt pads so it is noiseless and they don’t slip on the floor easily . . . . cheap too.

I tried some contact cement on my chair feet today [Weldwood Contact Cement Gel]. I’ll let you know how it works. LittlePaw – I’m afraid those wouldn’t stand up to cement/asphalt barn floors which is where most of these chairs go.
