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!

Simply the best

Curtis' product and customer service are amazing. The Facebook group is always informative. I am still very much a beginner at this but with the help of the group and some youtube videos am turning out beautiful pieces.

Great Service, as usual

I Ordered some alumilite dyes from TurnTex - they were shipped the same day, and arrived quickly. As usual, Curtis and his team provide the best service I have ever experienced. I will continue to order my stabilizing materials exclusively from TurnTex, knowing I will always receive top quality product, and top tier service.

Happy user

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.

Consistently satisfied

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.

Great Pump Saver

I have this Pump Saver hooked up between my vacuum chamber and pump right now. Everything I have gotten from Curtis is top notch and you will not find better customer service, shipping or warranties anywhere. Curtis and TurnTex are the go to in the industry for all things resin casting and stabilizing hands down!!!

No complaints

  Service was timely and the product does everything it says.  This was my second order of Cactus Juice and I added the Cactus Juice dyes as well.  After using them, they do seem to provide a more brilliant color than Alumilite dyes.  If you want to stabilize wood, this is what you need.

Cactus Juice

I've been doing business with TurnTex for 6 years now and haven't experienced better customer service anywhere.  The very few times that I've had occasion to need CS, my problem was corrected or further explained immediately.  Everyone you come in contact with is exceptional.   I'll pay more to continue to get this type of service and products.

Long Life

My name is Tony from Missouri.

I had been stabilizing for over 6 years and had some mixed and ready to go.  I got sidetracked and went out of town.  I had a heart attack and as time does, it kept marching on.  Some 3 years later I ordered more Juice and wanted to stabilize some wood and low and behold there was my juice and half a dozen pieces of wood still in my pot.  You have to understand this part of my tool shed is not insulated but open air and tin roof. In the last few summers, we had temperatures in excess of 100 degrees several days in a row and one of our worst winters in over a decade down to zero.  

 There was about a quart of juice and the wood had sunk to the bottom.  I wrapped the wood in foil and baked it. Turned out as good as any before and turned just fine as a pen blank.  I used the rest of the juice to Vaccuum and stabilize wood till I used almost all of it.  All turned out great and so I just added more juice and kept going through another gallon before finishing up.

  I know it has limits, but I can tell you from practical experience it will defy standards and leave you fascinated and scratching your head, all in a good way.  Thank you, Curtis. Thanks for a great product.

Great company

I wanted to say that first off I had a complete failure in one of my chambers. I emailed Curtis the morning of 5/21 asking for help on possible reasons why, ( did not expect to hear back till next week) Curtis called me that evening. We went through possible causes and reasons why this happened. In the end we could not determine the “whys” as there are too many variable, I guess When you stabilize as much as I do it was bound to happen and this was just a fluke. 

I will say I’m the end Curtis made it right and earned me as a customer for life. Great product and outstanding customer service!

Thank you again Curtis

Cactus juice

Thank you for the great product at a reasonable price. I use the cactus juice for stabilizing stone. Also excellent for wood products. Nothing is 100% perfect, but this product allows me to use material that I might otherwise set aside, and to me.. that's a big deal. The customer service has been great, including super fast shipping. Much appreciated! Best wishes to you, your family, and your business. Thanks.. Phil

1st class service

I have been using Cactus Juice for a few years now, and the level of customer service from Turntex is first class, I live in the Uk and Curtis has very kindly on a few occasions sourced other items and allowed me to send items to him to enable me to have these shipped to the Uk. Thank you for a 1st class service.

Casting knife handles.

 I have had excellent luck casting my knife handles with

Alumilite clear. I live in Oklahoma so I get my order usually in 2 days. I plan to use only Turntex for my casting  supplies. They sell great casting molds also. Five stars all the way, customer service can’t be beat.

New Product

I ordered two gallons of the new Cactus Juice formula and I like it a lot better than the older formula. I can stabilize more wood blanks with less juice bleed out, and it is a lot clear. It is a great product and i will be ordering more. Turn Tex has a very fast turnaround on shipping. Most times I order i have my products the same week. I have been very pleased with everything I have order for them.

Restocked dyes

Newbie to stabilizing and finding quite a learning curve. Blocks and blanks and enjoy adding color. Picked up the new to me purple cactus juice dye and like it. I am having best final results with the highest recommended dye to juice ratio when impregnating difficult blanks. Eager to try some of the new formula. Thanks for your products Curtis.

I highly recommend this company for their products and service!! I am a custom bow builder and use  their  vacuum chambers and Cactus Juice to stabilize my wood.

Great service!

I´ve been using Cactus Juice for the last two years and will do for the rest of my life. Turn Tex products allowed me to use unknown woods in the manufacture of traditional bows. I have played with colors to create unique materials for my Patagonia Archery bows. The company's team offers excellent customer service. I´m anxious to try the new formula.
