1. For that I use a nylon thread (it's NOT a dental floss, this one comes from the string from old blinders). One yard is good for going 4 times around each pole. I wrap it by doing a "slalom" around the poles, so after first round (9 poles) the string is comming out from the other side, this way two rounds around wrap evry pole from both sides (I hope it's clear).
2. To hold a stock can on the shaft use a prop adapter (or even a collar) that fits tight on the shaft and it's glued to the front of the bell. Any good glue for metal will do (Locite, plasti-zap, JBWeld).
