Fast turn around on my order. Communication is excellent. Couple these with a great product and you have a winner.  Turn Tex states they care about their clients and they back their statement up with positive action. You can count on them!  Thanks.

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!

Top Service!

Curtis and crew have always provided top service, great communication and the fastest ship out I’ve seen. Anytime I had a question he was always welcoming and helpful to get me producing great stabilizing. Thankyou to the Turntex crew!

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!

Awesome products

The Cactus Juice resin is the easiest and best stabilizing resin I have used. From Spalted Maple to Walnut, every knife handle I have stabilized is tough as nails and still holding true. Shipping is Uber fast, and that makes planning very easy. I know when I order to the day, when it will show up. I have very recently started into the Alumilite products and TurnTex is my go to for it. Keep up the good work Curtis, you and your crew make my life so much easier and I truly appreciate that!

Thank you for a truly great product.

Fantastic Customer Support

I have been using Cactus Juice for many years with great success.  The product provides consistent results and has allowed me to salvage many beautiful pieces of wood.  While there may be other products available, I have been a loyal  TurnTex customer due to their superior  technical knowledge and outstanding customer support.  Case in point, I recently had a question about using some outdated material.  I contacted TurnTex  through the website and within hours I had a response with a path to a resolution of the question.  Curtis and his team know their product and they support their customers!  With their variety of accessory products, TurnTex is the one stop source for stabilizing.

I did it right this time.

I have tried Cactus Juice before and being my first time stabilizing it didn't come out to well. I read the directions for the juice and another maker chamber. I did hold the vacuum long enough and didn't let it soak (missed that step). I got some Hempwood and tried turning it without stabilizing, not aa good out come. I got the Cactus Juice again and had printed out the directions to take with me to the shop to do the stabilizing. Using 3/4 inch square blanks I pulled the vacuum over night, let it soak until the next day, cure it at 200 degree F for 2 hrs (it says 1 to 1.5) let everything cool, and turned the Hempwood that night. Cactus Juice is amazing, just follow directions and your projects come out great.

Doing business with a small family owned company based in the U.S. is the way I want to spend my hard earned money. Curtis at TurnTex makes the decision easy!! The best products, the best service and my money stays here! If you haven’t bought from this company your missing out on  customer support that will take your projects to the next level! 

Thank you TurnTex Team

Great service

I was thrilled with the results from the new formulation of cactus juice. It preformed extremely better on the medium I was stabilizing. I appreciate the bulk 4 gallon pricing. It arrived in a timely fashion.

Love supporting small businesses!

Why give your money to the cooperate guys when you can get the same or better products from good ole hard working Americans! I've used TurnTex several times now and I'm always pleased with the products, price, and service. And how many times do you get an email from the owner where he gives you his phone number and says call with any questions! You can't get that kind of customer service many places these days! Keep up the good work and I'll be purchasing again soon! Thanks!

The stabilizer works. It was well packed, arrived quickly, and includecareful instructions. I used a dye for the first time, and was pleased with the resulting color of the wood, which I use for rings.

Fantastic Vacuum Chamber

I recently purchased a TurnTex Vacuum Chamber. It's a fantastic product that is exceptionally well made. TurnTex's Vacuum Chamber and Cactus Juice make stabilizing wood a breeze. And TurnTex's customer support is absolutely stellar. If fact, the personal support that Curtis provides is by far the most helpful customer support for any product I've ever purchased. I would highly recommend TurnTex's Vacuum Chambers and Cactus Juice for anyone who is interested in stabilizing wood.

Over the last three years I have seen consistent and great customer service from Curtis and his team!  Each order is processed accurately and fast. His products are my go too after initially trying and I am a loyal customer after my experiences with Turn Tex.  Head over to the Facebook group if you have a question and you should find an answer, if you can’t, just contact them and Curtis will have advice.  This is a great company with high quality products and excellent customer service.

Great Service & Products

Just wanted to let folks know how good the customer service and products are at TurnTex. I have recently begun stabilizing for my small business. The quality of the product provided by TurnTex and the customer support have been fantastic. Curtis has lots of great resources available in his website to guide you from start to finish. In the past month I have stabilized. Amboyna Burl, Yellow Cedar burl, Orange Agate, Holly & Buckeye Burl. all without a single glitch

Alumilite for Chola Cactus

I cast oak burls and Cholla cactus with Alumilite and I have never had a failure.  The Alumilite takes the colors I add and make the wood vibrant.  I only use Alumilite from TurnTex because of the superior quality and immediate service.  Thanks and keep up the great work.
