Turn Tex Woodworks= 5stars

Turn Tex is a great company to do business with. I had a few questions about the whole process and thought I would give them a call and I'm very glad I did. Curtis was way more helpful and gave up a lot of extremely helpful info whether it was about his products or other ways for doing things. I give the man credit for being one of the most honest and upfront people I have met in a very long time. Thank you Curtis for all the help and info, things are working great.

I love the stuff !

I have been using Cactus Juice for a few years now. I love the stuff. I am a full time custom knifemaker and use this for stabilizing all of my handle material. Great product, and such a super nice guy Curtis is. Thanks !!

Quite pleased

I received my new 6" X 14" vacuum chamber about a week ago. I did my first try with only 7 pen blanks. I used marbles to take up the extra space for this small run of pen blanks. They turned out perfectly. The only error I made was not wrapping each pen blank individually, and I had some excess dried bubbly resin on my blanks, which I easily removed with a belt sander and trimming on the tablesaw. I highly recommend Curtis' system. The quality in workmanship of the chamber was top notch.

Quick Service

I recently ordered Cactus Juice. The response time to my order was quick and my order came quickly.  Looking forward to learning the stabilizing process.  The site videos will be a great help.

Great workmanship.

I received my vacuum chamber last week and have been having a lot of fun since. The learning curve is not difficult and the results are amazing. Living in Alaska does not provide us with wood that is anywhere near ideal for turning and making knife scales. I have been experimenting with spalted birch which I have and an old spruce timber from a 100 year old mine in Juneau. I am really surprised how much difference there is after the Cactus Juice is cured. The workmanship that Curtis does is very impressive too. I really had no idea how much work he put into the fabrication of the chamber. I hope I never need another chamber but I can say for sure if I do, it will be from TurnTex. Thanks for such great service and help. Rod

Cactus juice

I tried the cactus juice and it worked very well. The density of the pen blanks were so much better after stabilizing that I will most likely use it on all my blanks. I really like your product. Thank you.

I'm a newb when it comes to stabilizing, but the cactus juice couldn't be easier to use.

great product, perfect for me.

I discovered this product on a video by Steven Ogle.  I finally have a use for that punky wood I have laying arround the outside of the shop. No more wasted wood.

Thank you Turn Tex for a great product.

Order was processed very quickly and it seemed obvious that customer care is very important. I received a follow-up email making sure that I got what I wanted. Online resources were very helpful in getting my wood stabilization setup ready. Thank you very much.

Great service

The product was delivered as expected, and in a rapid amount of time. Items were exactly as pictured and promised. Working with Curtis is always a pleasure.  I highly recommend Turn Tex.

all is well

Everything got here alright. One of the dye containers was missing the foil seal so it leaked out a bit, not a lot, maybe a teaspoon.

Other than that it seems to work just like you say.  

Just for your info -  I tried to stabilize some briar wood with some nice figure and burl.

Must be the way the the grain grows but that stuff would not take any Juice after the vacuum. I guess that is why it works so well for a pipe.

I like your product, thanks Curtis

Great company to do business with

I've been using CJ for over a year and beside being a quality product for stabilization, the sales, shipping, and service are with out question some of the best I've been exposed to. Would highly recommend this company to anyone that is looking for stabilization supplies.

Just received the order.

No glitches. You shipped the same day!!! (I wish UPS was as fast!).

It is a pleasure to do business with you. Hopefully, in the future, I will be asking for quantity discounts!!
