Truly awesome products

I recently purchased a Pump Saver and a new 4 port manifold and I could not be more happy.

Both pieces of equipment arrived well packaged and have performed flawlessly.

Thank you to Curtis and team for your incredible products and customer service.

Great Customer Service

I had a gift certificate and placed an order on line and I made an error when ordering. I called and left a message and I also e-mailed and both were responded to promptly. 

Curtis was very helpful and respectful. It's hard to find good, personal customer service any more.   Thank you

Good product

I am not new to using cactus juice. I’ve used it for about 4 years now and have always been happy with the results. I’ve used it to dye stabilize with excellent reactions. This most recent order arrived in a timely manner and packed well. The no foam formula is awesome. Already used some and it worked great! I highly recommend this product.

Full time knife maker

Hello I have been a full time knife maker for 32 years and I have been using stabilized woods most of that time. Up until now I have had to have someone else do the stabilization. I really enjoy being able to do it myself. Thank you, your Cactus Juice works, great

Absolute favorite

I am truly impressed with Cactus Juice.  It does such a great job in protecting the wood on my knives. 

It is so easy to use, safe, non-flammable, soap and water clean-up.  

I found a you-tube video from a pen blank turner where all of the how-to's were covered from chemical life, coloring, multi-dyeing, etc.

Great professional product and one of my absolute favorite for wood.

In between size

I like that could give Alumilite a try without having to make a large purchase. I don’t anticipate doing very large projects, so the 8lb purchase fits the budget. This give me the option to work through any learning curve without a big cost

Good experience

I became interested in stabilizing wood recently and after watching several videos on Youtube I came accross the presentation by Curtis Seebeck. It was by far the most informative of them all. After veiwing it several times I felt confident enough to order a vacuum chamber and Cactus Juice from TurnTex. I've run two batches of wood through now and have had no problems, the information provided has been well presented and through. I was surprised how much "juice" the wood will suck up, in the future I may need to order larger quantities than just one gallon at a time. Is that possible? I'll be in touch again All the best Mike Riley

Always Fast & ACCURATE

Turn Tex is the only fire and forget vendor I know I can count on. I know when I get the order done, I don't have to hawk it to make sure it will arrive. Place my order online, acknowledgment shows, shipping notice within hours of order, and I have yet to have to track a package, because it arrives before I am looking for it! Thanks Curtis and Crew, for making my life one thing easier.

Cactus Juice Believer

As I continue in my wood stabilization endeavors I’ve grown to trust the Juice and even more the company  TurnTex. What a pleasure to deal with, even the owner. 😃  Couldn’t be happier with all the different aspects of his bidness, from ordering, fulfilling, shipping and follow-up if needed.

First time user

I just used the stabilizer for the first time and very happy with results!. I've watched many YouTube videos... I love that it's easy to clean with water. I'm using it to stabilize larger piece of wood through the soaking method with no vacuum or pressure. soaking method seams to work very well especially for very punky and soft wood(maple). Because pieces are larger, I'm going to need several more gallons...i haven't even tried the dyes yet.  Super cool product and pleasant to work with!

Great place to shop

If you are in need of anything that goes with Resin, then this is the place to go. Ordering was easy and fast. I will be placing another with them soon. When I'm treated well I tend to stay and tell others.

Great Company

I have ordered a number of times and have always been more than satisfied with the service.  Curtis is also a great resource when questions come up.  This is a GREAT company to work with.  The products are easy to use and provide incredible results too!

First timer

I first heard about about Cactus Juice several years ago, I even purchased a tank and machine so I could start using it.

Fast forward to today, I finally got up enough nerve to buy my first 1/2 gallon jug. I have been using it to stabilize my rock slabs non-stop. It is so easy to use. 

my softer stones soak up the resin and come out of the oven looking great. I decided to stabilize most of my other stones as well. 

I used it on turquoise and fossils, just to name a couple. 

my only regret, not using it when I first heard about.

on side note, I made contact with the owner over the years asking questions, He was always professional, polite and eager to assist.

Great Product!!

I've been using alumilite clear and clear slow for my small business since 2020 and I've never needed another product. Their epoxy resin is second to none. I highly recommend.

Always Use TurnTex

When I first started stabiliing I ordered a chamber and cactus juice from TurnTex. During my first attempt a stabilization the Cactus Juice cured in my chamber. I contacted Curtis and he sent me a new chamber at no cost to me.(his idea not mine) I can buy Cactus Juice from several different sources but why would I. I would not get the level of commitment or service that I got from Curtis.

Shipping was quick and I received what I ordered. I used about hlf a gallon stabilizing a 10.5-inch diameter by 5-inch-thick piece of spalted maple. I currently have it on the lathe and attempting to turn it. So far, so good. I will let you know how it turns out.

Go to site for stabilizing needs

Turntex is the place to go for my stabilizing needs. I recently tried their colorants and I think they are much more vibrant than the Alumalite dyes.  The web site is packed with helpful information. Remember to keep the “juice” away from heat. I recently purchased a mini fridge to help prolong the juice and my cyanoacrylate glues

Replaced lost order


I contacted you about UPS saying they lost my order from you and would contact you about it. I sent you email about it and you responded by sending me a replacement order immediately without question. This is what service is all about and that is why I do business with you and your company. Your business practices are top notch and service is at the same level. Thank you and I will be ordering more from you soon.

Cactus Juice

This is the best product I've used to stabilize wood and horn for knife handles.

How many companies email you after the sale to see if you are satisfied and to see if they can answer any questions .

None that I know of so I'm very satisfied with my purchase .

Wonderful Service

I am lucky enough to live close to TurnTex and Curtis and Gaige have always been such a pleasure to deal with.  I typically need to pick up after hours or over the weekend and they have always been accommodating.


Product-wise, this is my first round of the new formula and am excited to see what comes out of it.


Thanks so much for providing me with stabilizing resin.

4"x16" Vacuum Chamber

Fully delighted with my 4x16 chamber.  Curtis has been incredibly helpful introducing me to stabilizing, answering all my questions and more with patience and expertise. His is old school customer service, the way it used to be and I wish it still was. The quality and craftsmanship of the chamber is exceptional. Many thanks, Curtis!

I've ordered cactus juice, alumilite resin and colors for each several times over the years. All orders ship quickly and complete. They are very well packaged and always arrive within a reasonable amount of time considering the journey from Texas to Pennsylvania. Thank you all so much. Keep up the great work!

Great stuff and service

Ordered and received my second batch of Cactus Juice last week.  I use it to stabilize fly rod reel inserts so they are more water resistant.  I activated the 1/2 gallon jug yesterday per instructions and stabilized 14 inserts in a vac chamber.  Took about 25 minutes for bubbles to stop flowing, soaked the blanks for another hour.  Fired up the old toaster over, wrapped the inserts in foil and baked them at somewhere around 200 (I don't think my thermometer is all that accurate).  The resin cured perfectly - the residual on the outside of the inserts is clear and hard.  I finished turning one insert this morning and it looks great.  From my experience I think Curtis has this process and the resin dialed in perfectly and has made it as foolproof as it can be.

Great experience

I only ordered some cactus juice and haven't had the opportunity to use it yet, so I can't say much about the product.

However, from a customer experience point of view, I couldn't be happier.  Could I have found the product cheaper somewhere else? Maybe.  Could I have found someone who offered "free" shipping?  Maybe.  Could I have found somewhere else that provided all the information about how to stabilize wood for free? Doubtful.

So, even though I may have paid a little bit more, and may have had to pay for shipping separately, and may have had to wait an extra day or two for it to arrive, it was well worth it to support a small business who is willing to share all of this information or free.

If I decide to get more into stabilizing wood and am looking for a dedicated vacuum chamber, I know I will buy it from Turn Tex.

Music City Pen Turners Gathering

Woo Hoo ! 😛 Just arrived back home from the most amazing event thanks to TurnTex show schedule.
Absolutely Loved meeting the main man Mr. Curtis O Seebeck and his lovely wife Kim they are simply wonderful !!

I took this incredible opportunity to see Curtis demo a TurnTex’s Cactus Juice Vacuum Chamber up close and personal along with an opportunity to see technique, ask questions, and discuss products it was a priceless opportunity. I can’t speak highly enough about his company and the team behind it.  I’m so impressed . I love the guesswork was taken out of the equation for a brand new inexperienced rookie like me . Looking forward to seeing you guys again in Waco. I truly can’t wait until the August event !  But until then I plan to play with my new toys now that Curtis has  taken my fear away. Gotta love it ! 😝😜   Sincerely  Grateful Grateful 🙏. Namaste. My friends WandaGail
