Great Company and Product

if you have any interest in wood stabilizing there simply is no reason to buy anything other than Cactus Juice.  And if you want it shipped out quick with guaranteed great service buy direct from TurnTex

Great product

This is my second purchase for stabilizing liquid and my first Alumilite casting. I heard about wood stabilizing years ago and decided to give it a try.

I build pool cues and also turn pens and other craft. I really like the Cactus Juice and stabilizing container. Fairly simple to use and the videos help too.

For pens and turning projects I am one of  a few turners in my area allowed to turn a very local wood from the Garry Oak tree. A lot of the wood needs stabilized due to spalting and deterioration.

Again it is a great product.

Great stuff!

I'm pretty new to stabilizing wood, but Cactus Juice has been great for my turning blanks. I recently got some spalted Beech that was on someone's burn pile, cut it up, dried it, and then stabilized it with Cactus Juice. It turned like a dream. Love this stuff.

Loven it!

Dont have a clue what all I am doing with my chamber but me and the kids have loved the trial and error. Lots of people to help us along the way. Need to sit down and watch a few more videos. Didnt bake long enough on my first cast. That was a fun and funny disaster that me and my children enjoyed. Thanks again for the great product and the advise. Would recommend you to anyone.

Very nice of you to offer help to people hurting from the Covid shutting down people's normal work.

Every one needs to keep this in mind when they need something and use the vendors who tried

to help those that need it.

Great Product, Great Instructions, Great Service

Just received a 4"x14" vacuum chamber, a gallon of Cactus Juice, and a ton of dyes. I am very excited to start stabilizing! The vacuum chamber is of top notch quality. Very solid, very good workmanship.

The instructions that came with the equipment were very clear, well written. I also appreciate the help section on the website. I feel very prepared as I embark on this new project.

I have also read other feedback of excellent customer support (until midnight on weekdays? Wow!), so I am comfortable that if I have a question I will be able to get an answer. 

Thanks for a high quality product, and excellent support.

Cactus Juice

I played around with the cactus juice with a friend who helped me to save a punky piece of burl. In it's natural state it was unusable. After stabilizing with Cactus juice I will be able to turn a beautiful bowl. I found Curtis to be helpful and responsive to questions and the website is full of good tips and info. I'm now a loyal customer and look forward to purchasing a stabilization chamber in the future. It's nice to know that there are still companies out there with excellent products, support, and integrity. Thanks Turn Tex!!!

Hello, I've received your shipment, thank you! I do not know English and do not want to express myself in public. Hope you are forgiving of that. Using translate right now to say that I am satisfied with the service and hope to return in the future.

Great Service

Ordered supplies and more juice from TurnTex, great service, fast shipping and I sent a message to get an extra bottle to store colors, and I would gladly pay. Got the extra bottle at no charge.

Also, called Curtis on using Part B Alumilite Slow that was about 2 years old, and the consistency of heavy goo. His suggestion of warming in hot water was the trick. Got 100% use of the resin as a result.  Great service from a  man who knows his business and our hobby better than just about anyone. 

I also used his chamber for degassing a little silicone, perfect. 

Highly recommend his products, services and supporting his business whenever you can, I do.

1st order

I recently placed my 1st and 2nd order with turntex! Shipping was spot on - very fast. I feel this is a down home honest company. Don’t ask me why I feel that way - I just do. Maybe it’s because I see Curtis respond to A LOT of questions on forums I read as well as how often Zac mentions this company on his videos as well as live feeds! Anyway, I’m glad I tried them and will buy everything they offer that I am looking for moving forward!

Turntex Cactus Juice turns e en the punkiest wood into a solid piece of material that is easy to work with.

I like to use drift wood and some types of tree bark for making pens. The colors and patterns you get from these materials is incredible. A lot of the drift wood

is very soft and some times breaks apart in your fingers. Cactus Juice gives me the ability to work with these materials and turn out some incredible pens.

Thanks very much.

Great service!

This is a great company and great product. I had some Cactus Juice that had sat around for 2 years and was no longer hardening.  I contacted them and bought enough hardener to bring it back to life!  Thank you so much.

stabilizing bowl blanks

Cactus Juice was delivered within the time frame given. I use enough juice to cover the blanks entirely plus about an inch, weight the material down or provide some method of keeping the material from floating. I pull just under 30" Hg and have been having good success when keeping vacuum on continuous until no bubbles or very few very small bubbles are visable and then shutting off the vacuum and allowing the blanks to stay in the jusice for double the hours under vacuum. I use a gram scale and toaster oven to bake the blanks dry by roasting the blanks at 200 degrees and periodically check weight until the blanks are no longer loosing weight, letting the blanks cool before submerging in the juice.

There is no competition for turntex.

This is the only product I will ever use for stabilizing. Works exactly like it's supposed to every time, customer service is excellent. Shipping is expensive but that's not their fault. This is a great company, and I'm happy to support them.

I received the gauge and plumbing for the vacuum chamber and they were in good condition. Your company was recommended by Randy Coates and he didn't disappoint. I'll be ordering Cactus Juice and some dyes in the near future. Regards, Wendell Roquemore

Catus Juice purchase

Recently tried to get Cactus Juice in Australia without sucess at all. Contacted Turn Tex to see if they had other surpliers in Australia. Curtis told me he could supply me direct. The online order went super smooth and the freight from the US to Australia was reasonable. Curtis ensured everything went smoothly his end. I got the two bottles within a week and a bit. I am super happy with the customer service and product. I will most likely be purchasing future requirements directly. A very happy customer indeed.

Outstanding Customer Service

Had a problem stabilizing some wood, which was totally my fault, and was able to reach Curtis who took time to explain to me exactly what had gone wrong and how to avoid it in the future. I ordered additional Cactus Juice and I had it within three days. Also, let me know if I needed additional information to feel free to contact him. Customer Service sold me on Turn Tex! George

Beginner Stabilizer

   I'm in the process of learning how to stabilize burl wood for knife handles.  My first attempts come out okay but not what I wanted.  What I'm trying to do is double  dye with two different colors.  I think that I need to add more dye to get the deep color I'm looking for.

Vacuum Chamber Magic

I have had a 4" vacuum chamber for sometime.  I wanted a 6" as well.  Curtis allowed me to but just the 6" chamber and interchange the controls between chambers.  Both work amazingly!!!

Very satisfied all around

I recently placed an order, which was shipped very quickly. The chamber I purchased, is made perfectly. You can tell Curtis takes pride his his quality control. One of the things I was most happy about, was all of the resources provided on the website. It made such an easy path to purchase the right pump, and make sure everything was taken care of before I started. Thank you so much again for everything!

Outstanding service

Placed my order and it was quickly shipped and rec’d.  You might think what the big deal is but getting supplies to Alaska is a real challenge and having a company like TurnTex is someone I will continue to order from and recommend.  Also I recently ordered a vacuum chamber and I can not wait for that to be shipped.  

Found this company mentioned in numerous places, but Zac at NV Woodwerks highly recommended and I would have to agree with him, plus he is a great source of information.
