Great product, great service.

I was getting less than satisfactory results with my stabilizing. I called Curtis and he straightened me out. I now am getting absolutely fantastic results. I am so pleased. Thank you, Curtis.

I’ve stabilized a few pieces of antique white oak and so far so good! I haven’t tried it with any of the dyes yet. Thank you for shipping so quickly and your use of priority mail flat rate boxes is great! 

take care!

Outstanding Customer Service

I purchased Alumilite Clear Cast Slow and the Alumilite Dyes, my order showed up well packaged and on the date that was indicated on my order. Three days after my order arrived I received an e-mail from Curtis wanting to know if I was satisfied with the order and if there were any problems/issues, which there weren't. I contacted Curtis with a couple of questions and my call was returned promptly and answered in detail and with some suggestion based on his experience.This is how a small business should be run.....kudos to Curtis and his staff!!!

Great Company

I’ve have been purchasing products from Turn Tex for a couple of years now. Every product has worked as described. I really like working with the cactus juice. It does a great job. The best thing about Turn Tex is their customer service. I’ve had questions and if Gaige couldn’t answer them Curtis did. I appreciate that they are one of those companies that appreciate their customers and will go the extra mile to make sure you get what you need. Thanks, BowieCorp.

I received an order from Turntex a week ago. During shipment, the package was damaged and part of the order was missing. I contacted Curtis who was extremely helpful and polite. He immediately shipped out the missing part which arrived promptly. I am a regular small business customer and plan to continue doing business with them. Very, very pleased with the products and great service!

Efficient and timely

I placed my order and it was shipped the same day. It arrived at my house two days later. I have not used the products left but I had to wait for my pressure pot to arrive which took much longer than two days (I didn't order it for TurnTex).

I ordered cactus juice dye for my dad for Christmas. I put the order in at 11:20 am and got a confirmation for shipping at 11:32 am. That has to be a record! I haven’t given the product to my dad yet, but he has liked your cactus juice product and specifically requested this dye. Keep up the good work!

Excellent Service

I ordered my Cactus Juice yesterday and with the holidays I wasn't expecting it for several days.. I received the email that my order had been received and then an email letting me know it had been shipped. I was shocked when it arrived today, less than 24 hours after ordering it.. Excellent service..

How a business should be

I recently ordered Alumilite, Alumilite dyes, and a bottle of Cactus Juice dye.  The owner of the company emailed me to make sure I understood the Cactus Juice dye would not work with the Alumilite and offered to remove it from my order and send a refund if, in fact, I had mistakenly ordered it. He was less worried about the sale than he was about me potentially messing up my project. This is how a business should be run. Thank you, Mr. Seebeck, you have earned a customer for life.

Extremely Pleased

I am new to the stabilized wood area but have been using epoxy resin for some time. When I placed my order, it was processed within hours and arrived in less than 2 days. Barely enough time for me to read all the the incredible documentation on the website. The information there was invaluable for a successful outcome. So much so, I ordered more and was again pleasantly surprised at how fast it arrived.

I had previously used another 2 part epoxy resin cor my woodworking. Now I will be using the products from TurnTex due to their superior service and quality of products.

Cactus Juice - Solution to all of those Questionable Pieces of Wood

I remember when Cactus Juice was first introduced.... snake oil or legit solution was everyone's thoughts.  The initial investment (vacuum chamber, vacuum pump, Cactus Juice resin, and then an oven to cure it in) may seem like a lot when taking a gamble.  Fast forward 15 years and now it is no longer alchemy, but a proven repeatable process that is straight forward with minimal effort.  Maybe you haven't even realized that you've already been using the product.... turned any pens recently with store bought pen blanks.

Do you have a punky piece of wood sitting on the shelf in your garage while you ponder a may to salvage it.  Do yourself a favor and just go ahead and buy 2 gallons (get the price break) .... because after you use it the first time you will be looking for anything and everything that you can stabilize and now use!

Just getting in to the wood stabilizing world and fortunately ended up at Turntex. Order arrived faster than expected considering the holiday season and everything looked perfect. Have yet to out it to use but expect to as time allows. Support and instructional material offered by Turntex ia top notch.

Highly Recommend

I have started making knife scales as a retirement hobby and have used Cactus Juice for two years now to stabilise wood for the scales. I have obtained some beautiful wood from trees I have cut on my property as well as some provided by a friend who worked at a small sawmill. The woods are a mix of solid woods, live edge, and slightly wormy and spalted. I was very satisfied with how the scales have turned out over the last year with Cactus Juice. I have recently purchased another gallon to try my hand at some more varied scales by adding epoxies to the scales. I did try some other methods I saw on youtube, and have found Cactus Juice to be far superior to anything else, in hardening the wood, enhancing the beauty, and ease of use. I highly recommend this product for any wood hardening needs. As a side note, my grandson, who is too young for a real knife to carry, wants me to just polish some of the wood scraps so he can have them to carry.

Great Company/Stuff

I've ordered multiple times from TurnTex -- Alumilite Resins, Dyes, and Cactus Juice.  The products all work great and TurnTex's delivery timing is fast.
The site is easy to use and the check-out process is straight forward with many shipping options.

I've asked for guidance via the help email and received very applicable and timely advice.

I will only order my Resins and Dyes from TurnTex, and of course Cactus Juice too.

Thanks TurnTex -- you make my art and me look fine!

Pleased, as usual.

Per usual, I placed my order around 9am and it was in the shipping process by 11am the same day. Received my gallon of Cactus Juice within 7 days. It works great for my hobby of stabilizing wood that I use with resin to hand turn shift knobs on my lathe. Thanks Curtis, you always impress.
