You're not going to find another vendor that is as pleasant and professional as Curtis... Top notch company with top notch products, Cactus Juice is not only the best product to stabilize wood it's also so easy to use. Satisfaction guaranteed following the directions.

Great Customer Service

I ordered a large bottle of black dye.  It was sent out so fast, I almost got it before I even expected it to be shipped.  I am always amazed by the customer service at Turn Tex.

New World Record

I ordered two gallons of juice yesterday afternoon, this morning before noon,

both gallons arrived .....The only way that could have happened quicker is 

if Curtis had driven over here himself...New World Record for delivery.

Super products and service !

I'm about to try casting acrylic blanks, and while looking for ideas and methods, I spent quite a bit of time watching videos and making lists on this website. This is the second time I've ordered from and I couldn't be more satisfied with their products and services. Curtis is willing to answer stupid questions and does it quickly.  I've not called him yet, but from what I've read, he's even willing to call you back should the need arise. My first purchase was a vacuum chamber and the accessories. Took more time to do that than what I thought, but I can't complain about the quality of the items at all.  Thank you for everything !!!

Are they really that good?

When you read online reviews of Turntex, you might think to your self there is no way a company can truly be that good. I mean, they must be paying people in exchange for great reviews, right? 


The reality is Curtis and staff ARE that good. They take pride in taking care of the customer. They make sure every customer feels like they are THE most important person because that's what Turntex believes. So will I order again from Turnex if they have what I need? ABSOLUTELY!! I don't have a need to order much from them often. But when I'm looking for something they sell, they are at the top of my supplier list!!

Great fast service

I'm retired and I buy knife blanks and turn them into functional knives. My wood of choice has always been Ironwood, because it is beautiful and I live in Arizona. After watching every episode of "Forged in Fire", I decided to try some other options. I kept hearing about stabilized wood and got interested. On a knife site TurnTex was mentioned as a good place for parts to build a vacuum chamber and the source for Cactus Juice. I have purchased several items from Curtis and the quality is great and the service is superb. I have never talked to Curtis and have been a customer for only a few months but I can assure he is honest and provided excellent service. 


Thanks Curtis.

Great stuff!

Dyes work great and super easy to mix.  Using 2ml dye per 100ml cactus juice seems to be giving good results on the zebra wood I'm working with.

Great service

Both my resin, and the pumps I bought later, were delivered very quickly. Even with standard shipping, I received both orders on the second day after ordering. They even sent a replacement cap that was broken during shipping. Curtis and his crew are really on the ball. The resin I bought has performed flawlessly. TurnTex is a perfect example of American exceptionalism!

Great Products and Customer Service

I just started using the chamber I got from TurnTex and had several questions. Curtis was quick to respond with advice and guidance. The chamber is very well made, excellent workmanship. I also purchase a pump saver and it does the job well.

We use the Cactus Juice for stabalizing all our wood.  It works wonderfully and everything comes out just right.  I highly recommend it!  It's great that you offer discounts for buying in bulk.  Really helps up be able to afford more of the product.  Thanks!

Everyone should use Turntex

I was fortunate enough to stumble across Turntex website while searching, pretty much in vain, for a reliable supplier of Alumilite.  Most other sources I found were either overpriced would not deliver to Canada at a reasonable shipping rate, or were unable to provide any certainty re the age of the product.  Turntex meets all my requirements at a reasonable price, with excellent service and no quality issues.  Do yourself a favour, if you need alumilite or cactus resin or vacuum systems looks no further than Turntex. I doubt you will do any better.

Awesome product

We got our chamber in about a week, we have yet to use it. It seems very solid and the instructions were crystal clear. The customer service and prompt responses are second to none. I will continue to do business with this company and promote them any chance I get. Awesome product and people
