Sprocket adapter/wheel issues

I was riding my bike yesterday, and I noticed whenever I accelerated, the sprocket would slip a little before going. I checked the sprocket adapter and it was not putting enough pressure on the hub, but was putting pressure on the spokes. I have 2 snapped spokes and a few bent ones. The adapter was tightend on all the way and it still slipped. It's also because the diameter of the wheel hub is smaller than the diameter of the adapter, so I wrapped the hub with hockey tape to add some diameter, and it worked, but not anymore. Should I get mag wheels? Or any other adapter solutions?

You'd been better off lining it with some plumbers mesh instead of tape.
