Customer Comments

I was quite impressed with Curtis and his products. He is one of the few suppliers who takes the time to answer every question presented to him. I ordered Cactus Juice from him but haven't used it yet so I can't honestly report on that product yet. I can comment on Curtis's devotion to the customer, which I would rate 10 out of 10.

I continue to learn the art of stabilizing wood. The Cactus Juice is a great product. I think the price is fair. It is easy to understand. I begin my next step by going from straight to tinted Juice. The most impressive Element to these product line is Curtis. I enjoy buying from honest, and creative shops. knot to pen; Roy Sanders

I'm a newby to small project turning interested in turning pens as gifts. I acquired several pieces of burl wood and had issues drilling and turning the wood due to the punky and softness. After researching stabilizing i ended up ordering cactus juice to try out in my vacuum chamber. This stuff is AMAZING!! drilled and turned like butter! the finish was so smooth that i started the sanding with 500 grit. I never tried anything else to stabilize but no need as this is my go to juice now!! HOOYAH! Tom

I have used Cactus Juice for around a year. The first gallon I used was more learning how to use the system than actually stabilizing anything. I'm on gallon two, and I love the stuff! The new vertical tank works wonderfully. Anyone looking at wanting to stabilize their own materials, this would be a great system to use.

Ordered and received Alumilite dyes, very strong colors compared to other retail outlets, gives great coloring when double dying blanks. Shipping was fast as I had work waiting for the dying.. Talked with Curtis about needing Activator to "recharge" older Juice I hadn't used up, he was very easy to work with, and took all steps needed to make sure I understood everything about the "re-charging". Curtis is so easy to work with, his shipments always arrive before anyone elses.... Would definitely order straight from this site before I buy same thing from a 3rd party vendor.

We received our order for a stabilizing tank and fittings, resin, and color. We have run through several batches of pen blanks and have been pleased with the results. Each new batch helps us learn a little more about different woods and how they respond to the resin. Thanks for being prompt in the delivery of the equipment. We look forward to doing business with you in the future. Mark Hutchings

This is my second purchase from Curtis and TurnTex. I bought a chamber and a gallon of Cactus Juice after it was recommended to me by a bazillion people. I tried it out and tested it for my Website. I was very impressed by the quality and value of the purchase. I recently bought 4 more gallons of Cactus Juice since I have come to use the Chamber a lot. The shipment went right out when I ordered it just like the first one. Curtis saved me some money on the shipping which lowered my costs even more. I highly recommend TurnTex for all your stabilizing and dying needs.

I cannot say enough good things about Curtis and Turn Tex Woodworks. He offers outstanding products, reasonable prices, great packing, and fast shipping. But, it is really the service after the sale that is truly outstanding. He personally answers questions by phone, and in fact encourages calling if you are having any problems. He spends considerable time to be sure that you fully understand his explanations. He obviously has a desire to pass along his vast knowledge on the subject of resin stabilization of wood, turning techniques, and related subjects. Turn Tex gets my highest recommendation.

I have three of your Round "juice proof" chambers and each work perfectly. The most resent being a 6" diameter X 12" tall one. That one saves me lots of time and work. Love it. These chambers are well built and I am pleased with each of them. Thank you Curtis for making a quality USA product that I can trust. Ray

Curtis makes a superior product in his newly redesigned vertical tube chamber. It works exactly as advertised. It is priced below what he could get for it, but don't raise your prices Curtis! The documentation could be better. I learned more about how to use it in a telephone conversation with Curtis than from the printed instructions. Anyone looking for wood stabilization for the small wood shot cannot go wrong with the hardware or the Cactus Juice.

Curtis I just though I mite drop you a line so I could let the rest of the world know how happy we have been with your system. since we started using Cactus Juice about three years ago our knife sales have increased about 45%. the Quality of our blanks have increased 100% we produce about 15 to 20 knifes a week and over 1/2 of them are with stabilized materials. We have been dyeing just about every type of wood you can think of. we have stabilized everything from bone to brain coral. still haven't found anything that it doesn't work well on, The chamber that we purchase from you over three years ago has hundreds of uses on it and it is holding up just fine. When we have questions you are only a phone call away with the answers. We here at LCL Hunting want to extend a big thank you out to turn Tex for helping us grow our knife business. Keep up the good work Curtis. If anybody else out there has any questions about our experiences with Cactus Juice or turn tex please feel free to call me 303 419 2184 Chris Lopez Pres. Of marketing and sales LCL Hunting. Thanks again Curtis

I purchased the 10in Juice Proof container and a gallon of Cactus Juice. It's fantastic. I've done two batches of spalted Maple and they've turned out great. The container is solidly built, easy to use, and clean up is a breeze. I'm very happy with this product. Thank you.

Met Curtis of TurnTex at the SWAT symposium in Waco Tx. We talked for several hours off and on about the stabilization process. I ended up buying a chamber from him that day. Works great!! The clear chamber makes it simple to control foaming as the vacuum is drawn down and easy to see when all the air is finally out of the blanks. Great guy with a great product.

I tried another company's Stabilizing Resin as it was easy to get locally at one of the chain stores. The instructions that came with it were wrong in that the catalyst resin wasn't packaged as it stated. I called on a Friday afternoon and ended up waiting all weekend to get help. They explained when they called me back that they had changed the packaging just not the instructions. I called to order cactus juice instead this time and figured id leave a message as it was 8 at night. But they answered and helped me get the right thing. Now that is service.

I recommend all of the products at Turn Tex without reservation. Recently, we ordered a 14 inch cylindrical vacuum chamber in order to stabilize knife handle blanks. So far, we have used the equipment to stabilize stag horn, Osage Orange, Paduk, Walnut, Black Locust, Persimmon and figured Hickory. ALL of these materials stabilized perfectly following the directions found on-line at Turn Tex. The materials buff out very nice and the hardness has increased significantly without brittleness. Thanks Curtis!
