Customer Comments

I just bought a second vacuum chamber from Curtis, and had the old one repaired (I dropped it!) Great service, I enjoy visiting his shop because I always learn something from him. I have used at least several gallons of cactus juice, the chambers have worked well, and other than "learning experiences" the cactus juice has worked well. I would have no heartbreak continuing to use Cactus juice or the vacuum chambers.

I like cactus juice lot. I had been experimenting with acetone based plastics, but the acetone hurts the vacuum pump and acetone is not good on my skin. Epoxies were ok but set up faster then desired and are not runny enough. Mini wax sort of works but is not as hard. Cactus juice has no order, does not hurt the pump, can soak as long as you want, is cost effective, accepts the dyes well, is simple to use. I stopped looking around and experimenting with different products. This is it! :D

Received my stabilizing chamber and Cactus Juice just the other day. Workmanship is flawless! I haven't used the rig yet, for lack of finding a suitable vacuum pump. But when I do find one, I'm sure everything will work great. Curtis sent me my order in good faith, I hadn't paid for it yet. How's that for customer friendly. I will certainly do business again with Turntex.

I've been using many gallons of the Cactus juice, without any issues, the product does what its says it does, if you follow some simple instructions. Shipping charges are a little "painful" for me but, that is nothing with Curtis, he always gets my orders in the mail within a day or two of ordering so, that is good service. Australia is a long way from Texas in the USA, so far, nothing was lost during transit, that may have to do with the very careful packaging and some of the steps Curtis introduced to seal each bottle/container, and avoid leaks, so far, it has worked wonders...! I like to deal with Curtis, he is a honest and fair bloke...! Cheers George

Worked great, the videos were clear and even tho my oven malfunctioned and burned the heck out of my first batch, my second batch (and new used oven) came out great! Curtis answered all my questions and was a big help. Thanks!

I bought some of Curtis's C. Juice about a yr ago and have used it for several kinds of wood. I made a homemade vacuum pump and used it on some very punky wood, some so bad I could stick my finger in it with little resistance. Always with great results. I just ordered some more and unfortunately didn't get anything like enough. After talking to Curtis, I had great results and was using it all, and I mean all wrong. I hadn't let it set up long enough and kept it under vacuum pressure all the time. I felt pretty stupid, but if I got the results I had and used it wrong, what's it going to do using it right? Can't wait. Curtis is a very informative and Patient man. Thanks Curtis. Ray Finchum, Wetdreamin' duck calls.

Stabilized my first set of blanks with Cactus Juice and they turned out fantastic! I couldn't be happier. I've got about 40 more blanks ready to be stabilized. Curtis, get ready for another order soon!

Curtis,I am well pleased with the speed in which my order was filled. Also, the Cactus Juice seems to be working well for me, haven't had enough time to give an honest opinion. The application for this product in my case is not making pen blanks, maybe I can share that info at a later date. Definitely will be ordering more.:):) Thanks, Byron

Curtis makes a great product and is an honest businessman and craftsman. We had a problem with the lid to our chamber which just happened to be two days out of warranty. Curtis immediately shipped a replacement lid at no charge. The new lid was a new design which eliminated the possibility of a repeat of our problem.

I am so glade i watch You Tube that is where i was first introduced to the cactus juice stabilizing resin and see through chambers, I had just ordered a larger vacuum system just before i seen the turn tex site. To make a long story short I paid to send the pro vac system back and got in touch with Turn Tex. The customer service was top notch just like the products and they stand behind there stuff willing to set for hours on the phone to help with your system which there wont be much these systems are top of the line all the way around and I picked up a small 3 cfm single stage pump from e bay for 74 bucks and the 8 x 8 chamber goes perfect together. Cant go wrong with Turn Tex.

All the comments I have read about this product has been amazing. I ordered a chamber and attachments last February and I understand that this shop is very busy and I realize that it will take some time to get it shipped out. I was only wanting to be informed about the approximate shipping date. I am not trying to rush them. I just wanted to be informed of the status of my order. I have left two voicemails and two e-mails and got no response from either. Customer service is everything in my shop and I expect the same from other shops. I haven't had an opportunity to try the product but, so far, not happy with the customer service.... [color=red] My Comments: E-mails were replied to within a couple of days of receiving them but they apparently have been going to the customer's spam folder. On the first voice mail, I replied by e-mail as that is typically better for me since I can do it late at night. After the second voice mail, I realized my e-mails were probably not getting through so I did call and speak to the customer and got it all straightened out.[/color]

I have ran a few batches now using the Catus juice and am very happy with the results. I had some questions in the begining and Curtus took the time to answer them even tho it took quite a while to get thru all of them on more than one occasion. I have sent some of the wood of to friends and they all have said good product as well. Will keep using the product and already need to order more in a day or two for some bigger projects. I highly recomend this product \r\nRandy Gill\r\nRetriever Game Calls

I have been dealing with Curtis for years. I have had flawless performance from everything I have ever purchased from him. When I have had questions regarding his product or usage, thereof, he has always been exceedingly helpful. Because I do not use exclusively and make many of my own Resin blanks, I don't have need for a LOT of his materials, but when i have spoken to him on the phone, with questions, etc, you would think I was the only customer he has. All I can say is Turn Tex Woodworks is a wonderful business experience.

I have been a professional woodworker for over 20 years, I work both in the flat board world and as a turner. I am also an instructor who teaches various woodworking subjects nationally. Over the last couple years I have ordered lots of resin, several sets of dyes, and a very large custom sized vacuum chamber from Turn-Tex. I have been more than pleased with everything I have purchased. The products are exactly what they are marketed as and their quality is unquestionable. The customer service is outstanding and responses are very timely. Curtis has answered any and all questions I've had and is very helpful and open with his knowledge of the process of infusion or stabilization and dying. The DIY info on his website is very helpful as well. I have referred many people to Turn-Tex and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work Curtis!

After using my chamber for over a year I developed a problem. I was not able to get full vacuum while stabilizing. Curtis deduced that the lid was not sealing properly and replaced it at no cost. I am very happy with this system and the results I get. Thanks Curtis.

I waited a while for my stabilizer but it was worth it. I blew thru 2 gallons of juice in a week and ordered 4 more gallons. Received them in a few days and went thru another gallon. Super fast service. Curtis has returned every call and let me pick his brain for info and tips every time I called. I've already made enough blocks and scales for probably more knives than my bud and me could make in a life time- but now I have amazing wood for horse trading! Product is top notch-easy to work with and works as said it would. Next run will be bone and antler then fossil mammoth.

I purchased the round vacuum chamber and it was well worth waiting for. In fact, after stabilizing my first small batch of wood, I ordered another gallon of Cactus Juice! My rig included all the gauges, etc. needed, so all I had to do was connect it to the vacuum pump (I bought the Robinair model that Curtis recommended) and go. It worked flawlessly. I also purchased some of the dyes... the droppers dispense TINY amounts of dye. If you try to make the hole any bigger, use caution - it's a two-part bottle. Don't ask me how I know this. By the way, a product called Reduran removes dyes from skin very effectively - Curtis - you might want to add this to your line of products. :D Bottom line -- I highly recommend the vacuum chamber and the Cactus Juice resin. Will definitely be a repeat customer!

I enjoy all the educational videos on your site and have referenced them several times. My order was promptly sent, arrived when expected. I have stabilized my first batch, which did well, but I had a bit of a learning curve, so my future batches will be great. Thanks for a great product, great service and great videos.

I've had my Juice Proof chamber for about a month and have only ran 2 batches of pens blanks. 100% satisfied with both the chamber and the cactus juice. This is not only a result of the products performance but of the amount of support information and directions Curtis has made available on the internet. To be perfectly honest I must add one negative comment. The wait from placing my order to receiving my chamber was excessive as I waited months instead of weeks. That is behind me now and I'm looking forward to years of expanding my wood turning capabilities using Turn-Tex products. Recently I placed an order for more Cactus Juice and received it in a matter of days and without damage. I followed the shipment through 10 UPS depots and fully expected to receive a wet box and empty jug. That's what I call a modern miracle!!!

Absolutely the best customer service I've had from anybody I've dealt with. During a phone call, Curtis took the time to go over all the details of the stabilizing process with me. He pointed out many of the subtle details I wasn't aware of.

I really enjoy using this product for my hobby business. It's easy to use, safe, and a great quality. One of the best features is the cost savings on stabilizing wood. I don’t purchase $5-$8 blanks anymore. My goal is to use only native woods from my local area. I enjoy studying the types of wood, going to the woods to hunt specific species, the best kind to use. So far I have gathered Live Oak, Hackberry, Mulberry, Beech, Dogwood, Magnolia, Red Oak, Elm, Weeping Willow, Pecan, etc. Try buying all that off the web in stabilized; it would cost you a small fortune. The Cactus juice makes available a uniqueness to your pen turning and wine bottle stopper practice that no other product could, it also greatly adds to my profit margin My clients bring me tree limbs or specific woods from great grand parent’s property, old church pews they sat on as a child, old furniture of sentimental value. The pen becomes a memorabilia Using “Cactus Juice” has made my hobby a standout among all other wood turners

I am impressed with the service Curtis has provided to me. Besides answering my questions to help me get started as a novice at stabilizing wood, he makes sure his customers are fully satisfied with the results. I recently placed an order which was delayed because a technical problem. Curtis more than made up for the delay by enclosing a surprise gift with the delivery, his way of making sure his customers are happy. Besides having a great easy to use product, Curtis is an honest straight forward person. It is great doing business with him.
