I use the "turners tape" they sell at woodcraft.  Strong stuff.

 

So do I, but I get my from the local Rockler.

OP, if you haven't used turners tape before, do a little experimenting if you get it. If you use to much tape, you'll need a hammer and  paint scrapper/chisel to get the pieces apart again.

Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered some from Lee Valley, i will use it sparingly.

I use ACE carpet tape from ACE hardware stores. They have two types, plastic back (50106) light duty, which I use for things that I want to take apart soon and cloth back (54308) heavy duty which I use for heaver use that I want to stay put. 

The plastic backed tape is great for use on the scroll saw when stack cutting or holding router patterns in place without damaging a good surface. The cloth backed is great for perminate applications on jigs etc. (and probably on a lathe but, I don't have a lathe so, I don't really know)

I mounted My outdoor thermometer sending unit to the north, outside wall of the house with heavy duty tape and it is holding up well summer and winter.

I use these two. The one on the left is a plastic carpet tape. On the right is the turners tape from lee valley. Both hold great when given firm pressure. And both leave a bit of residue if left too long, although the carpet tape seems to work better for reusable applications ( only a few).
