You mentioned a suggestion of using rubber cement on the upper half of the chimney, but you're looking for other ideas as well. Here are a few suggestions that might help you stabilize the cane on slick metal tubes:

Sanding the Tube: Consider lightly sanding the surface of the metal tube. This can create a slightly rougher texture, providing more grip for the cane to stay in place.fnaf games

Using Teflon Tape: Teflon tape, commonly used in plumbing, is a thin, non-sticky tape that can provide some friction between the cane and the metal tube. Wrap a small strip of Teflon tape around the tube before tying the cane. This can help prevent slipping and migration.

Applying Shellac: Another option is to apply a thin coat of shellac to the metal tube before tying the cane. Shellac can create a slightly tacky surface, helping the cane adhere to the tube more securely.

Waxing the Tube: Some oboists find success by applying a small amount of beeswax or paraffin wax to the metal tube. Rub the wax onto the tube's surface, creating a thin layer of wax that can provide more grip for the cane.
