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!

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.

Just a short note to thank Turn Tex for delivering products AS ADVERTISED! Too often products are sold that do not match the advertised description. My order was well packaged, promptly delivered, and quality in nature. I will definitely re-order.

Through what I’ve come to know as “pilot error” (my brother was an air traffic controller who said almost every crash was because the pilot made an error), I 100% managed to make my vacuum cylinder garbage.  Curtis helped me understand what happened, and gave me a very generous discount on a replacement.  I’m SO impressed with the way he handled MY problem, and helped me!  
it does not get better than this!  Thank you, Curtis.

Cheers, A Canadian who, like the Terminator, will be back!

Well done thanks

Curtis thanks for all your help from years ago when you first started your business and I didn’t have a clue on how to stabilize my pen blanks lol but you was patient and answered all my questions to get me going. What a big help you have been to this community also with fast service and fair prices on the cactus juice and vacuum chambers. Thanks again  Don from Florida

Awesome service and great products 

thanks Curtis

Great Stuff

I recently acquired a couple of Yellow Birch blanks that were beautifully spalted, but very punky.  I used Cactus Juice to stabilize both pieces with great results.  It takes a couple of times to get the stabilization process fine tuned, but the results are well worth the wait.

Very happy

It's rare a good product can actually be improved but cactus juice has been.  New formula is great, much less foam out and leakage with curing.  New dyes work way better too. Great job!!

Finally settled on alumilite as my first true resin for making blanks, my first blank proved I made the right choice, 1:1 mixing makes my life easy. My first blank turned out awesome! Thank you Curtis!

Another great transaction

Always impressed with the service from Curtis and his staff. From the communication, to the fast shipping, the products that are top notch, I have very few vendors who get it right every time. TurnTex is a go to company when you need materials, not excuses. Thanks for another great transaction.

the real stuff!

artist mediums come and go but for me alumilite is the real thing to work with.  the results are the best i have ever seen. the moment i pop the lid off i know if it worked or not.  worthless wood theory is in itself a challenge but the goal can be easily achieved if you know what you are doing. in resin there are fast and then there's nothing.  for me the castalytic response is the real method for the art.  the method of pour and splash or even spatter the colors together make what i'm referring to. it's easy and fun despite what people say.  if you are going to use wood you should always wear gloves and cook the wood to dry it out!  i wear gloves until it's been cast and then and only then do i stop touching the wood with gloves.  as for turn tex these guys are the true inspiration for my work, some say "they" are the originators but i stick to my guns and buy from turn tex!

Never bought a product from a company where you talk to the person who has created the product and cared so much about his customer and there satisfaction.   I will only deal with him for any of my stabilizing needs. He is very good to talk to and learn from.  Thank You

Great product, awesome customer service

Cactus juice has been a great addition to my toolbox and allowed me to take some of the most punky and spalted wood and turn it into beautiful works of art.   I see other copycat versions of stabilizing resin on the market, but it does not have the proven track record and customer support that Turntex provides.  Before I purchased my first batch of cactus juice I spent hours reading through the help section and it gave me a clear understanding of how to do it right and then Curtis was very helpful in filling in the blanks as I went through my first few batches.  Love the product, love the customer service.  Also, always get exactly what I ordered and very quickly.
