Cactus Juice

All my experiences with your company have been great.  The service is super and product just keeps doing it's job.  I'd love to have availability of a larger volume discount.

High quality products

Everything Turn Tex sells is very high quality.  No cheap junk here.  When I was having some problems with stabilizing wood, I called Curtis and he helped me trouble shoot and resolve my problems.  It was user error.  Nothing to do with his products.  I couldn't be more pleased with the results I'm getting.  I am a wood turner that makes threaded boxes.  After I stabilize soft spalted wood it makes for perfect crisp clean threads.

Best Customer Service and Fast Delivery

Ordered resin from An hour later I was notified the order had shipped. I know for a fact that I would not have gotten that email unless my order had actually shipped. My order arrived the next day. Even at 350 miles that is still fast shipping.

The best out there

I started using Cactus Juice a number of years ago after having trouble with an unnamed competitor.

In these years of use, I’ve never encountered any problems and have been able to count on their quick turn around time from order placement to delivery.

Further, I find the updated formulae to be better since there isn’t any real risk of to much foaming.

Cactus Juice

Order was processed and shipped on the same day I placed it. Product was at my door the next day. IMHO Cactus Juice is by far the best wood stabilizing product out there and TurnTex customer service is the best.

Experienced pen turner, but new to casting pen blanks

I was very pleased with the quality of the products and the prompt service I received from Turn Tex.

I will be coming back for Alumalite resin for sure, and maybe I will try some stabilizing products in the months ahead.

The service I received was wonderful, and I am grateful.

Great Product and Service

As always, Curtis and his team deliver exemplary service and sell great products. My most recent order was for a Alumilite Clear Slow 16lb kit - I ordered it and received it only a couple days later, 1000 miles away. The only way to get it that quickly was for Gaige to pack my shipment and get it to UPS almost the same day. Great Service!

Of course, my next order will be some Cactus Juice - I'm running a little low. :-)

Great Service

Thanks Curtis, somehow you can get UPS to deliver from Texas to Florida in 3 days for a very reasonable price.  I just sent a package and it took 5 days and cost more than twice the Turn Tex price.  Thanks for taking care of your customers!

Just Perfect

I bought some cactus juice from TurnTex, had it shipped via UPS ground. The product arrived quickly and was professionally packaged. It was at half the price when compared to similar items on Amazon and is very high quality. Small buisnesses deserve our support especially when they go above and beyond. Thank you again!

great stuff

I had a pretty price of wood that was rottoning. I used the cactus juice as instructed along with a stabilizing chamber and a foster oven and it just simply worked. The natural colors of the wood popped. It was a price of pine with alot of knots and it came out extremely smooth and perfect. Thank you for this product. I will try the colors I bought soon

Best turn around time to Hawaii

Aloha Turn Tex Staff,

I just want to extend a thanks from here in Hawaii.  Living on an island that is isolated by the Pacific Ocean has presented issues with shipping times to our buisness.  Your service has been far better than Amazon.  Packages arrive early and in great shape.  My wife and have just opened our business that stabilizes Hawaiian hardwoods.  Due to the varied nature of wood species we select some stabilizing products are better suited for stabilization than others.  Your heat cured monomer formulation is among our top choices for stabilizing wood.  

We thank you for your great product and service and we look forward to having many years of patronage to come.

Stepping up my game!

I am a career turner with twenty years in business. I recently decided to start exploring stabilizing wood and resin casting. TurnTex was a dream come true for supplying both equipment and knowledge. My orders arrived quickly and I've been headed down this rabbit hole for several weeks with zero plan of turning back. I highly recommend TurnTex to anyone who is looking to get involved with these crafts. You won't find a better company in my opinion. Mike King, owner The Spanish Peacock Flashdance Designs

Vacum chamber kit

Purchased a Vacum Chamber kit from TurnTex just recently. It arrived in a very timely manner exactly as advertised. Was completely assembled  so all I needed to do was drill a hole and attach to my pump. Saved me a ton of time not having to chase down all the individual components. Probably some cash also. Would I buy again? In a heartbeat, Thanks TurnTex for a quality product at a fair price.

JB Royal is my choice of epoxy

I was a long time user of Royal Palm Resin and I am so glad that JB Royal Resin is now on the market. My customers love that i make my tube in blanks with this product. They say it turns so easily and smooth and polishes up with such a shine like no other resin. 

I have been making tube in blanks for some time now and have used other resins in the past. I will stick with JB Royal because it mixes as a 1:1 ratio. I place it in my pressure pot and it comes out bubble free. It does not yellow over time and is very friendly to turn.

Thank you for bringing it back on the market.

Out Does Amazon

Amazon is the standard for most people as the pinnacle of service.

TurnTex has them beat hands down.

On Time and Great Quality

Ordered 4 gallons of cactus juice. When others were providing me 2-3 weeks leadtime, TurnTex said they could have it to me in several days. True to their word, the product came when promised . Well packaged, no damage, and an exceptional product. Further, I emailed the company twice during the ordering and shipping time period; I received replies to my questions within 1 day.

I highly recommend this company. Great service deserves our attention and our dollars.

Outstanding Customer Service

I purchased Alumilite Clear Cast Slow and the Alumilite Dyes, my order showed up well packaged and on the date that was indicated on my order. Three days after my order arrived I received an e-mail from Curtis wanting to know if I was satisfied with the order and if there were any problems/issues, which there weren't. I contacted Curtis with a couple of questions and my call was returned promptly and answered in detail and with some suggestion based on his experience.This is how a small business should be run.....kudos to Curtis and his staff!!!

Great Company

I’ve have been purchasing products from Turn Tex for a couple of years now. Every product has worked as described. I really like working with the cactus juice. It does a great job. The best thing about Turn Tex is their customer service. I’ve had questions and if Gaige couldn’t answer them Curtis did. I appreciate that they are one of those companies that appreciate their customers and will go the extra mile to make sure you get what you need. Thanks, BowieCorp.

I received an order from Turntex a week ago. During shipment, the package was damaged and part of the order was missing. I contacted Curtis who was extremely helpful and polite. He immediately shipped out the missing part which arrived promptly. I am a regular small business customer and plan to continue doing business with them. Very, very pleased with the products and great service!
