1st order

I recently placed my 1st and 2nd order with turntex! Shipping was spot on - very fast. I feel this is a down home honest company. Don’t ask me why I feel that way - I just do. Maybe it’s because I see Curtis respond to A LOT of questions on forums I read as well as how often Zac mentions this company on his videos as well as live feeds! Anyway, I’m glad I tried them and will buy everything they offer that I am looking for moving forward!

Turntex Cactus Juice turns e en the punkiest wood into a solid piece of material that is easy to work with.

I like to use drift wood and some types of tree bark for making pens. The colors and patterns you get from these materials is incredible. A lot of the drift wood

is very soft and some times breaks apart in your fingers. Cactus Juice gives me the ability to work with these materials and turn out some incredible pens.

Thanks very much.

Great service!

This is a great company and great product. I had some Cactus Juice that had sat around for 2 years and was no longer hardening.  I contacted them and bought enough hardener to bring it back to life!  Thank you so much.

stabilizing bowl blanks

Cactus Juice was delivered within the time frame given. I use enough juice to cover the blanks entirely plus about an inch, weight the material down or provide some method of keeping the material from floating. I pull just under 30" Hg and have been having good success when keeping vacuum on continuous until no bubbles or very few very small bubbles are visable and then shutting off the vacuum and allowing the blanks to stay in the jusice for double the hours under vacuum. I use a gram scale and toaster oven to bake the blanks dry by roasting the blanks at 200 degrees and periodically check weight until the blanks are no longer loosing weight, letting the blanks cool before submerging in the juice.

There is no competition for turntex.

This is the only product I will ever use for stabilizing. Works exactly like it's supposed to every time, customer service is excellent. Shipping is expensive but that's not their fault. This is a great company, and I'm happy to support them.

Great products!

I received the gauge and plumbing for the vacuum chamber and they were in good condition. Your company was recommended by Randy Coates and he didn't disappoint. I'll be ordering Cactus Juice and some dyes in the near future. Regards, Wendell Roquemore

Catus Juice purchase

Recently tried to get Cactus Juice in Australia without sucess at all. Contacted Turn Tex to see if they had other surpliers in Australia. Curtis told me he could supply me direct. The online order went super smooth and the freight from the US to Australia was reasonable. Curtis ensured everything went smoothly his end. I got the two bottles within a week and a bit. I am super happy with the customer service and product. I will most likely be purchasing future requirements directly. A very happy customer indeed.

Outstanding Customer Service

Had a problem stabilizing some wood, which was totally my fault, and was able to reach Curtis who took time to explain to me exactly what had gone wrong and how to avoid it in the future. I ordered additional Cactus Juice and I had it within three days. Also, let me know if I needed additional information to feel free to contact him. Customer Service sold me on Turn Tex! George

Beginner Stabilizer

   I'm in the process of learning how to stabilize burl wood for knife handles.  My first attempts come out okay but not what I wanted.  What I'm trying to do is double  dye with two different colors.  I think that I need to add more dye to get the deep color I'm looking for.

Vacuum Chamber Magic

I have had a 4" vacuum chamber for sometime.  I wanted a 6" as well.  Curtis allowed me to but just the 6" chamber and interchange the controls between chambers.  Both work amazingly!!!

Very satisfied all around

I recently placed an order, which was shipped very quickly. The chamber I purchased, is made perfectly. You can tell Curtis takes pride his his quality control. One of the things I was most happy about, was all of the resources provided on the website. It made such an easy path to purchase the right pump, and make sure everything was taken care of before I started. Thank you so much again for everything!

Outstanding service

Placed my order and it was quickly shipped and rec’d.  You might think what the big deal is but getting supplies to Alaska is a real challenge and having a company like TurnTex is someone I will continue to order from and recommend.  Also I recently ordered a vacuum chamber and I can not wait for that to be shipped.  

Found this company mentioned in numerous places, but Zac at NV Woodwerks highly recommended and I would have to agree with him, plus he is a great source of information.

Thank you for your quick response

Two gallons of Cactus juice and five dyes ordered from Japan on May 22 arrived on May 30. The Turn Tex service, which ships within hours of ordering, was wonderful. Perhaps customs is passing through without any worries and problems. Isn't it volatile so can I fly? Unfortunately, one of the dyes (gold) that arrived at me jumped out of the lid and contaminated the other dye containers in a bag that contained only the dye. When I gave feedback on that, the general manager immediately mailed me (gold) and 4 other labels. I arrived today. The goodness of Japanese services is being evaluated, but TurnTex's services may be at the same level or higher. A reliable company. Thank you very much! I will do my best to make a good work.

Great Service

Even though the shipping cost calculator did not figure the cost right. I split the  order to 2 separate orders to get the shipping cost down. However  the orders got combine and I was only charge for the shipping of the first order (2 gallons of Cactus Juice) refunded the  shipping cost of second order ( 1 Bottle of dye). Great service and nice to have a person in the loop instead of all computerized.

Fast shipping, great product

I bought a vac chamber, a couple gallons of juice and some dye. My first time experimenting with wood stabilizing, but first round was a great succes. I love the vac chamber, and I felt much more comfortable ordering this one instead of a generic brand from amazon. Glad I did, as it works great. The cactus dyes work well too. Seem to be a little brighter color and not quite as dark as the alumilite ones, which I like.

Great Service

This is a great company with great service.  I recently purchased Cactus Juice to start stabilizing wood in preparation to resin cast.  Having never done this, my first attempt did not go well so I emailed TurnTex with questions as to why that might be.  Curtis from TurnTex called me directly (on a holiday weekend) and walked me through what possible errors I was making with no judgment.  Following his advice, I have had great success with this product.  I am now on to Alumilite Casting.

Cactus juice

I have only placed 2 orders with Turn Tex so far. I will be placing many more.


Both orders have almost shipped before I could get my card back in my wallet. Both orders I paid for 3 day shipping. Both were in my possession 2 business days later . The products are great and the service is above and beyond top notch.
