Thumbs up!!

TurnTex checks all the boxes for quality, service and reliability. I ordered two gallons of Cactus Juice this last time, paid with a credit card, and within twenty minutes was advised a shipping label had been created. UPS acknowledged the order was picked up that same afternoon and arrived on the scheduled day. I'm not a heavy user, but Cactus Juice works extremely well, performs as advertised and Curtis provides all the assistance that can be asked for. Between the web site, the Face book group and the snappy response to email questions, Curtis is the definition of customer service. I buy a lot online and businesses could learn a lot from the TurnTex business model.

Truly amazing service..From the time I ordered , till the receipt of the juice, the only way the

time could be reduced is if I drove over to TurnTex in person.

Good Stuff!

Your Cactus Juice works great for soft punky wood!  My only challenge is it’s limited to sizes I can get into my little toaster oven! 
Thanks for a super product!

Quick Shipping

When I started stabilizing wood I started with Cactus Juice and until Curtis stops making it that is the only product I will use! I don't use a lot, but whenever I purchase everything goes very smoothly. This time my order was shipped the same day I ordered it and arrived very quickly. I still have Juice left from my first order, it's become an experiment to see how long it lasts. I do one batch in the purple/black dye it has become and as I finish up the last of a gallon I pour whatever is left in there. 4 years and counting and still working great!

Great product great service

I have cactus juice for 10 years plus. I stabilize fossil ivories, musk ox horn and wood bowls. It makes soft unusable items usable. I always refrigerate to and it has never failed.

Good service Good product

I have used cactus juice for 10 years plus. I stabilize fossil ivory, musk ox horn and wood bowls. I don't use a lot but when I stabilize that is what I use and it has never failed me.

I keep it refrigerated and if always works.Makes unusable items usable after stabilizing.

Great product

Cactus juice is a remarkable product. There is simply no other product that can take its place. I guess I am going to have to start buying the size larger than the quart. I stabilize pinecones for knife handles. They fit nicely in pint jars and three jars fit nicely in my vacuum chamber, but they soak up the cactus juice and I end up having to turn them end over end and add more juice to make sure they're completely submerged and fully cured.

Top Notch Service

When I order my Cactus Juice, I am always concerned about freight to Hawaii. Curtis hasn't disappointed me in the past and didn't disappoint this time when I ordered 4-gallons of Cactus Juice. The freight to Hawaii was a little over $44 and was delivered in less than 1 week. Outstanding!

The service and advice I received from Curtis @ TurnTex was excellent. I purchased a vacuum gauge and connector. 100% satisfied with my purchase and the products

Awesome stuff for gourds and driftwood!

I start using the juice a year ago to stabilize driftwood pieces for bandsaw boxes. Then I started to experiment on gourds and that just opened up another door for me. I can do more intricate cut out work on them and not have them fall apart in the process. No color change so that allows me to do pyrography art work and not lose the detail on the gourd. The juice is easy to use, clean up is easy, and hardens with very little bleed out. Shipping is fast, it gets here in one piece and no leaks, Keep up the good work.

Both pieces of equipment arrived well packaged and have performed flawlessly.

Good product

I am not new to using cactus juice. I’ve used it for about 4 years now and have always been happy with the results. I’ve used it to dye stabilize with excellent reactions. This most recent order arrived in a timely manner and packed well. The no foam formula is awesome. Already used some and it worked great! I highly recommend this product.

Full time knife maker

Hello I have been a full time knife maker for 32 years and I have been using stabilized woods most of that time. Up until now I have had to have someone else do the stabilization. I really enjoy being able to do it myself. Thank you, your Cactus Juice works, great

Absolute favorite

I am truly impressed with Cactus Juice.  It does such a great job in protecting the wood on my knives. 

It is so easy to use, safe, non-flammable, soap and water clean-up.  

I found a you-tube video from a pen blank turner where all of the how-to's were covered from chemical life, coloring, multi-dyeing, etc.

Great professional product and one of my absolute favorite for wood.

In between size

I like that could give Alumilite a try without having to make a large purchase. I don’t anticipate doing very large projects, so the 8lb purchase fits the budget. This give me the option to work through any learning curve without a big cost

Good experience

I became interested in stabilizing wood recently and after watching several videos on Youtube I came accross the presentation by Curtis Seebeck. It was by far the most informative of them all. After veiwing it several times I felt confident enough to order a vacuum chamber and Cactus Juice from TurnTex. I've run two batches of wood through now and have had no problems, the information provided has been well presented and through. I was surprised how much "juice" the wood will suck up, in the future I may need to order larger quantities than just one gallon at a time. Is that possible? I'll be in touch again All the best Mike Riley

Always Fast & ACCURATE

Turn Tex is the only fire and forget vendor I know I can count on. I know when I get the order done, I don't have to hawk it to make sure it will arrive. Place my order online, acknowledgment shows, shipping notice within hours of order, and I have yet to have to track a package, because it arrives before I am looking for it! Thanks Curtis and Crew, for making my life one thing easier.
