What a pleasure to place orders with Turn Tex.

I recently placed an online order around 3pm. By 4pm I had an email from Turn Tex that the order was shipped.

Curtis has an outstanding product with matching customer service.


Works of Art will always value it's relationship with Turn Tex!

Customer service

Dear Turntex, 

It has been a long time since I have said this about a company. Your customer service and timely response and delivery of products has impressed me greatly. I had some ordering problems, self inflicted, and you took care of it. I accidentally ordered cactus juice three different times, instead of once. When I checked my bank balance later your team had taken care of it as promised. Thank you bringing back, what I remember, as what an American company should be! 

Sincerely Kelly Anderson.

Great products and service…

I spend a lot of time on the knives I make so I have to have  reliable products that I know I can count on to get the work done quickly and professionally. Cactus Juice stabilizing resin  is by far the best product of its type that I have ever   used and it will always have a place in my shop.

TurnTex is the best!

TurnTex is my go to for alumilite.  The prices are great, the selection is excellent, but the most important thing to all of us is customer service, and theirs is superb.  Curtis is an absolute rock star when it comes to making sure his customers are well taken care of.  I have had nothing but amazing experiences with TurnTex, and always recommend them when someone asks about a product they sell.  If you're thinking about purchasing a product that TurnTex sells from somewhere else, just buy it here.  You won't be disappointed.

Outstanding product and service

I've been using Cactus Juice and the related dyes for several years in my small woodworking business and they have always has been outstanding products.  My average annual use is about 15 or more gallons per year so I have a bit of experience working with it.   The revised, less foaming formula is great and allows me to start a new batch of woods quickly with less concern for initial foam up toward the top of the vacuum chamber.  I've gotten to know Curtis through personal contact and a week long stabilizing / casting class and his knowledge and expertise has been invaluable.  Some of my best selling items utilize stabilized woods which would not have been possible without the use of Cactus Juice and his other products.  Just as important, Curtis is a wealth of knowledge and is willing to share his experience, so if answers to questions are not immediately available on his FAQ page, he's always been quick to get back to me.  While there seems to be a growing market of companies offering wood stabilizing resins, I doubt many can provide the personalized service and expertise available from Curtis and his Turn Tex company so I'll continue to be a loyal customer for life.

First timer!

As a first timer with no help or guidance, I followed the directions to a T and got everything right but I had to dilute the color a bit. It penetrated and cured well. The wood doesn't feel plastic and seems nice and solid. I'll experiment more and use more dye in the future but, cactus juice worked as advertised and stabilized, colored and oenetrated the wood as described with no complications. It's simple and easy to figure out on your own.

Forever customer

I ordered more cactus juice as it is the most reliable stabilizing resin I have found to date. I will only order from Turn Tex because they are so fast at filling the order. Within 30 minutes of ordering, I received a email saying a label was generated for shipping. The post office delivered it to my PO Box the next day. Outstanding service.

Great product

In over 35 years as a custom knife maker I have used a lot of different products and have never found a better, easier to use product than the Cactus Juice Stabilizing solution. I highly recommend it to any one who takes pride in what they produce.

Awesome product, awesome company

In today's environment of little or no customer service it is refreshing to deal with a company like TurnTex. Super responsive when products are ordered, (almost) immediate processing of the order, and shipped quickly. And fantastic customer service after the sale. Customer for life.

cactus juice

I've heard of cactus juice for stabilizing wood but have never used it. I did a google search and found your Turn tex website. WOW!!    I was impressed with all the info and how easy it was to order.  My juice arrived promptly and I have started to stabilize my own wood. So far I'm liking it and I've already recommended your co. to other wood turners here in Minnesota!

lemme tell ya something about turn tex

I've been buying cactus juice from these guys for a few years and I have nothing but good things to say about them. I even had a lovely conversation over messenger with Curtis about the vacuum chambers that he makes himself and after talking to him I purchased one soon after and absolutely love it! I was using bvv chambers but after the chamber imploded and the glass top fell off and broke they refused to do anything to help a brother out, so making the switch to turn tex chamber was not painful at all, besides these guys treat you like family any way and I love that. but what else I love is the JELLY! Curtis sent me some in my last order, Curtis- if you are reading this the jelly is legit. great job my friend. Love you guys, keep up the amazing quality and care that you show you customers, you have one for life here.

The best and in my opinion the only place to go for your stablizing and casting needs

Curtis and his team are amazing people, you couldn't ask for better customer service. They're great prices, everything you need for casting or stabilizing. Only place I know of where you can buy their product and have the owner walk you through how to use it in troubleshoot and answer about any question you can have. It's a good company a great team and fast shipping.

Great Experience

I recently started making knives and wanted a product to stabilize the wood I use to make handles. It didn't take long to decide that Cactus Juice was the only way to go for stabilizing. In my research I found that not only is this the best product available for the stabilization process but that Curtis, the owner of the company, is an incredible source of information and goes above and beyond in his customer service. A business like this is a rare find these days and it's very refreshing to have the honor to support them. I would highly recommend this product and this company to anyone that is interested in the stabilizing process.

I have not used the Juice yet still waiting for the vacuum chamber and the vacuum pump.  But the Prickly Pear jelly was outstanding, great flavor. I will be ordering more jelly soon,  Ron

Definitely Satisfied!

I put in a fairly large order (for me) of Cactus Juice and also picked up a jar of Cactus Juice Jelly. I haven't tried the jelly yet but looking forward to it. What I needed was available at the time I ordered and it shipped to Alvin, TX, in no time so I am one happy camper. I have been gathering everything I need for stabilizing for several years now and the purchase of the Cactus Juice was the last piece needed--I am looking forward to learning this process and seeing how much of a creative bone I have in me.

Super fast 10/10

I recently had a question for Curtis regarding leftover Cactus Juice that was out of date.  I had to order some new juice ASAP as I was getting ready to demo for our woodturning club here in Santa Cruz.  Curtis was very fast in getting the package out to me so I could do the demo.  He is always there when I need him to help.

Thank you Curtis.

Nice product

I'm a knife making hobbyist, who loves all aspects of the process of making, anything really. So when I took on the task of stabilizing my own wood for handles it added another layer of enjoyment to the whole project. Turntex has provided a very nice product, along with essential information on how to get good results with the stabilization process. A well stabilized piece of wood is such a unique kind of material to work with. I can sell my knives with confidence that the handles will remain durable and resilient to abuse.

New to stabilizing

YouTube videos directed me to TurnTex. I am very glad they did. Curtis has been extremely helpful as well as the other guy who helps with shipping. Not sure of his name right now? I was able to talk to Curtis on the phone, and he answered all of my questions very professionally and courteously. (And patiently)  Because of his quality products this has been easier than I had anticipated! I am having great success and already ordered my 2nd gallon of Cactus juice. Now I am experimenting with the dyeing process. I mainly work with resin/hybrid maple burl caps for spheres, bottle stoppers, pizza cutters, and bottle opener‘s. Thank you to all who work at Turn Tex for being so helpful!

Long time user

I have used cactus juice for stabilizing wood blocks for knife handles now for about 6 to 7 years and have been very satisfied with where the product originally started and where it currently is in regards to the original and the new and improved. I have learned what to do and what not to do through the website and experience.

To say the least I’m very pleased!

Great products, fast service!

I recently purchased some aluminite casting resins, both clear and white. The information on the website is great, shipping speed was great, supporting small business is great (I work for a very small company myself) and what I've done so far has turned out wonderfully. I will certainly be ordering more. Thanks!
