Customer Comments

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!!!

I use TurnTex for Allumilite and Cactus Juice.  Their shipments are always very fast and the products are great quality and exactly as advertised.  I look forward to ordering from them again and again.

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.

Customer Service

Received my ordered parts in 3 days. Speedy delivery and the quality of parts were outstanding. Great communication with company through the use of E-mail. Did my research for the parts i needed to finish a project. Thought Amazon would under bid anyone, Not for this company. Have ordered parts and supplies before from this company. Never any issues at all. Great pricing and American made in the Great state of Texas. Looking forward to maintaining a great business relationship with this company.

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.

I have tried several other stabilizing resins only to return to cactus Juice. It does a very good job not to mention that the support offered by Turntex is very helpful.

Awesome stabilization chamber!!

I highly recommend turntex. Upon opening I can tell they take pride in there work. Their stabilization chambers are made out of high quality materials, and looks very professional. It works great also. I have my second batch of knife scales in the chamber as I’m writing this. I highly recommend turntex

Hands down the best

I’ve been making knives for 8 years now, and every wood handle I put on a knife is stabilized in Cactus Juice first. I’ve never had a failure, it’s easy to use, and the customer service and quick shipment make the choice easy. Thank you for being an integral part of my business.

There when I needed i.

I was pleasantly surprised and grateful when I saw Curtis’s notification about helping those in need during this Covid19 pandemic. I run a really small business and a lot of what I make in “profits” I put back into material costs. A lot of the product I make is a gamble and I don’t get a lot in return. I do it because I love it and I hope to one day make a living off of it. Cactus Juice costs a pretty penny, reasonable, but it’s something I need in my shop. Curtis makes it happen, and in a few days it’s delivered and I can get back to work. Thank you for coming through and helping me out! Good to know that this community can look out for each other.

pump jb

Hi curtis, I hope everything goes well, and you are enjoying that trip. I am trying to get a jb pump here in Europe, I would like to ask you if a 3 cfm 15 micron pump would be valid for the stabilized one? Thanks in advance,here in europe i can only get platinum

Good stuff

I've recently returned to using Cactus Juice in my wood bowl making.  I have several pieces of spalted and punky maple that have exciting wood grain and I just could not throw them into the fireplace. CJ has allowed me to treat that wood not only with stabilizer but with color. Of course you need a large vacuum pot or chamber and a lot of CJ to submerge the piece. But it turns great and sands very smooth.

Beat Customer Service

Turntex was the only business I found willing to ship Cactus Juice to me in Hawaii. I am grateful for his commitment to providing outstanding customer service and great Products and prices, which is the reason why I won’t buy my wood stabilizing products anywhere else. 

Thank you Curtis,

Works great!

Pretty simple to do. The videos on the site could use an update since they dont follow the directions included with the juice. A quick google search will lead to many videos which do show best practices when stabilizing.

Shipping was super fast!
