Customer Comments

A great experience

I recently ordered a number of wood stabilizing items. My order was processed promptly and shipped quickly. There was an great instruction sheet enclosed as well. I have a tendency to vote with my wallet and if I'm not satisfied I go elsewhere. These folks will have my business for a long time.

Great Product

First of all, thanks for the extremely fast shipping all the way to Saudi Arabia. Secondly, when I first looked into stabilizing, I've visited many forms and watch numerous videos; surprisingly,  no one and I mean no one recommended any other product. In all honesty, I bought cactus juice with ease in my mind that it is going to work, and what do you know, it really does. 

Thank you so much for the great customer service and the amazing product.

Volume Purchase saves $$$

I'm a serious woodturner, and have gone through my first quart of Cactus juice already, so I ordered the two gallon unit at a volume discount. Since it comes un-catalized, I can set the other gallon aside and wait until it's need. My wife suggested I try to sell it to another member of our local Club, but I might need the second gallon for myself!! LOL  The order came poackaged well, and is an acceptable amount of time. There was no leakage from either jug. I'm very happy with my purchase, and will order from TurnTex again. They have several products besides the Cactus Juice that I use, like dyes for coloring the Juice.

First time ordering and will definitely be buying again. Speedy reply to any questions and my order shipped the same day. If you are looking for somewhere to get your casting supplies, it's hard to beat turntex.

Beginning Stabilization and Casting

I am just starting to stabilize wood and add alumilite to my turnings.  I found the TurnTex website very helpful in getting me going and their prices are very competitive.  I will definitely order more supplies from them in the future.

Cactus juice and alumilite


I am a small business owner/sole proprietor of Rush Custom Callers. I hand turn and tune individual game calls one at a time on my lathe. I cover a large genre in what I call my audible arsenal of game calls. Covering water fowl (duck/goose), whitetail deer, predator, and turkey. I often use cactus juice and alumilite clear for many of my game calls. I couldn’t be happier with the ease of use with these products and how durable they are. I was most impressed with how well the alumilite mates to the surface of the stabilized wood while turning on the lathe after casting. Very durable!!

Thanks for making a great product!

Consistently great service!

Curtis, as always was able to be reached directly for questions prior to my order. Amazingly fast turnaround on my chamber and Cactus Juice. Chamber quality is top notch, and though I consider myself handy, it’s beyond what I’d have done for not much more than the cost of parts.

Great products and the best customer service around

I’ve now made several purchases from Turntex and every time is the same. Immediate email response to order, shipped the same day and follow-up email.

Great products, I will continue to do business with Turntex

Pump Saver

As usual Turntex' service is second to none. I ordered my pumpsaver and had it in 3 or 4 days. I buy from Turntex because I know Curtis stands behind his products. The quality of his products are top notch. I will without a doubt continue to deal with Turntex for all my stabilizing needs.

Top Notch Service

I place my resin order on a Friday afternoon. I had already received my order when I returned home from work on Tuesday afternoon.

I could not be happier with the service and quality of product delivered.

Good things to say...

Hello, Curtis. I've tried to call you a couple three times...and yes...afternoon...but I am assuming you're a working man! 


My wife bought me a vacuum chamber from you for my birthday. The order number was 29457.

It's been great and the wood is stabilizing wonderfully with the cactus juice. Some of the pens I've turned on here:

I also gathered some driftwood from Galveston Island...making a video for YouTube on how to stabilize it and make hybrid pen blanks...and ultimately pens! I call you out (positively, of course) in the video...and I will link to your site as well.

Cactus Juice Purchase

I placed my order, within a couple hours it was shipped.  That is amazing service.  I’ve heard a lot about cactus juice but never tried it.  I am getting together with a small group of Women turners and we are going to give it a test.  I’m sure we will be happy with the product.

Thanks for great service

Stabilizing made easy

The stabilizing chamber came with everything need to start your project (you can find a decent pump on Amazon). I was up and running in about 10 minutes. You will not find a better stabilizing chamber anywhere.

Well made setup and instructions are complete and easy to follow

I ordered the vacuum chamber to begin with and then decided it would be a good idea to order the pump saver before I attempted the stabilizing process. It's a good thing I did - I ran my first batch through yesterday, by following the instruction booklet. The pump saver caught what would have been in my pump right off the bat, but everything else went well I think from there.. Instructions in the booklet were excellent. I stabilized some walnut that had been in a barn for years and years and was given to me when the owner passed away. It had been in my basement shop for several more years.  I really like the look of walnut pen blanks, but I've had a couple crack before thinking that stabilizing might be a good idea. The process took longer than I had hoped, but I think it went well. I emailed Curtis and he recommended soaking the blanks for a week or so after stabilizing, (since they are walnut) so they're still sitting in he chamber soaking. I would recommend these guys for everything. The chamber and everything that goes with it is excellent and easy to use with the instructions being so complete. They are excellent in responding to any questions you might have if you don't see your question on the website.

2nd order

Just ordered my second gallon of stabilizer. As before it arrived on time and in good condition. I am really enjoying cleaning out my wood handle scale drawers and getting familiar with this process.

I have been hording beautiful woods for several years. Being able to use some guestionable pieces has got my enthusiasm up and I have been running a good deal through the stabilizing process. And, it's fun.

Thanks Curtis for making a fun and profitable, product you don't have to be  a chemist to use.

Best of the best

it’s easy to hear from anyone that stabilizes that cactus juice is the best product on the market, in fact I’ve never heard a professional using anything else. What you don’t hear is about the best customer service ever. Curtis doesn’t just sell products, he cares about his products, business, and most importantly customers. My first gallon I ever bought, I messed up, I did something it clearly says not to do but I just didn’t think about it. I called Curtis just to make sure my mistake was the only thing it could have been. He said yes it was but still worked with me to resolve. Not many companies doing the amount of product he does can you call and talk to the owner on his cell phone. Buy from Curtis and turntex, you wont be disappointed.

Great shipping service

An Australian customer report: Wanted to thanks Curtis and the shipping team for their celerity.

However Australia post took more time to deliver the parcel in central Australia than it took to travel from Texas to Sydney customs.

Thanks for your work and I wish that you had a branch in Australia or in Asia Pacific...

Take care and bless you all for your work and dedication!

Cactus Juice purchase

I've used Cactus Juice before with very good results, saving wood that wouldn't have even been firewood. The shipping was fast and secure and the website takes all the mystery out of using the product. Highly recommend the product.

A new adventure

I ordered a 6x20 stabilizing chamber from Turntex and a gallon of Cactus Juice to stabilize some Oak burl I found in the forest.  It's an interesting process and something I had never tried before.  Got a used vacuum pump from a HVAC friend and after the wood had sat in my shop attic for 9 months I started stabilizing.  Following the directions Curtis provided with the vacuum chamber, I stabilized my first batch of wood and it came out very nice.  I had several experienced folks tell me that Oak was not the greatest wood to stabilize because it cracked a lot and would have many occlusions and they were right.  However, I am pleased with my first batch of stabilized wood.

Now for the bad news.  Curtis' instructions very specifically advise not to let Cactus Juice get hotter than 85 degrees or bad things will happen.  On my second batch I left my shop shut up for several hours while I did some brush hogging and when I came back to check on the process I learned very quickly why directions should be followed.  The CJ had gotten over 85 and  became a solid mess in the vacuum chamber.  I have returned the chamber and solid mess inside it to Turntex and Curtis is hopeful he can fix the problem.  Hope he can.

Lesson learned for me is that because my shop is not air conditioned I shall only stabilize in the spring, fall and winter in Arkansas when temps in the shop remain below the critical point.

If you want to stabilize your own wood, I highly recommend Turntex and Cactus Juice.

I am a beginner to stabilizing and have not used the Cactus Juice yet. But Turn Tex was quick to get it shipped to me and if that is any indication of how this hole thing is going to go I feel good.
