Great product for stabilizing, wood, antler and bone! The dyes are easy to work with and great penetration! Best of all it doesn't stain your hands!

Amazing, user friendly, and consistent!

Awesome product! Very versatile and user friendly, easy for even the most novice. Has shown to be effective at stabilizing things I didnt even think would be possible! First time using the Cactus Juice dye, and so far very pleased with it. Very intense colors.

First order of Cactus Juice

This is my first attempt at stabilizing wood and I went with the recommendations found in YouTube videos regarding the stabilizing material.  I purchased my Cactus Juice from TurnTex and found the process simple and fast.  When the product arrived, it was packaged properly to withstand the riggers that comes from the shipping processes.  Great job and I will continue to use TurnTex when I need more Cactus Juice,.

New Beginner

Being a new turner and wanting to learn as much as possible before spending the dollars, Curtis is the best source of good information on the "how to" of stabilizing and casting, the do's and don'ts and the right equipment "proven" to work. I have his casting tank, the vacuum pump dryer adapter and will not buy Alumilite or Cactus Juice from anyone but him, period. Further he answers all questions and keeps developing new products and ideas. 

You can trust his skill, knowledge and sincere love of what he does. Craig, P.O. Box 947, Buffalo, MO 65622

Fantastic Experience

I couldn't be happier with my TurnTex experience.  I don't know that I've ever shopped somewhere with faster shipping.  I'll be a lifelong customer after just 1 order.

Awesome support

After cooking my temperature sensor cable due to my own neglect, TurnTex sent me out a cable at no charge.  I'm not entirely surprised, having grown up in Texas, but this is above and beyond service.  I can't recommend this business enough.

Very happy with products

I have now bought Cactus Juice and Alumilite from TurnTex.  I had not left a review before because I had to wait until our night temps stayed above 50F to actually use the products.  Both products work very well.  I used the Cactus Juice to stabilize pine cones, peach pits and worthless wood that I had.  The results have been great

Fast shipping even over a weekend

Wow, didn’t expect such quick delivery. Ordered later on Friday, received confirmation and shipping notice with 2 gallons of cactus juice and some dye in hand by Thursday using regular shipping. Great service.

The Best in Wood Stabilization

Curtis at TurnTex has been great from start to finish on my order. Not only that, he provides customer service and information long after your purchase. I had bought a few cheaper stabilization chambers prior to ordering mine from TurnTex. Ironically, I was using Cactus Juice to stabilize the woods. Both of the chambers I bought from competitors failed. I then set out to put an order in with Curtis. There is a 6 week waiting period because he custom builds each chamber to order. It was well worth the wait. These are the best chambers and they are built by the most respected guy in the wood stabilization industry. Had I known this prior, I would have bought my chambers directly from Curtis. You live, you learn. Curtis stands behind his product and I have met many who have guided me along the way to attest to this. Buy the best, buy it first. Don't be like me.

Benchmark Knowledge, Products, Service

Thank you Curtis for guiding me into such a great hobby.  The knowledge I’ve gained from your guides and instructions is unmatched.  Everything’s posted on the website, and it’s easy to find Turntex instructional videos.  Great social media presence.  Great products.  I can’t wait to get my vacuum chamber and pump saver.  I just wish I had ordered from Turntex before I spent hard earned money on cheap and inferior stop-gap equipment.  Turntex offers investment quality products that are designed to outperform and outlast the others.  Well worth the investment.  I even upgraded my vacuum pump, based on Turntex product guidance.  Take Curtis’ advice, it’s based on solid experience and solid judgement.  I’ve also ordered supplies, Cactus Juice.  Packaged and shipped within a day, and I received it within a couple of days.  Lightning quick!!  I also appreciate that Curtis is available for help and advice.  He took the time to return my call to offer instructions and coaching.  That’s unheard of!!  Thank you Curtis.  You’ve gained another devoted customer!

Amazingly Fast and Simple

I ordered a quart of Cactus Juice resin to stabilize some burl and black palm, and within 24 hours it had shipped, and it arrived incredibly fast. Besides being the manufacturer of Cactus Juice, they are also the cheapest supplier that I could find. After receiving the easy-to-use bottle, I was also able to contact TurnText to receive insightful advice to help in my stabilization. I'd definitely recommend buying some from them!

Ordered Cactus Juice & dyes

Product and customer service are excellent! I had some questions and they answered them thoroughly and quickly. Highly recommend! This is my second time ordering their product, and as a knifemaker this has helped me bring the entire process from forging to handle making in house. Thanks! @reddragonforge

Great Products and Customer Service

Everytime I order something from Turntex I get a great product and great customer service. My last order was for a vacuum chamber. It took a bit longer to get it than I expected but Curtis explained that he was a bit behind due to personal family issues. I respect a man who puts his family first. His products are the best on the market. Curtis provides endless support to the stabilizing community through participation in facebook groups and gives the best advice even if it does not lead to a sale.

Joe McNeely Custom Blades

I just received my order of 5 gallons of Cactus Juice and several bottles of dye.  I have ordered from Curtis many times before and each and every time, The product is shipped the same day or if I order late in the day, by the next morning.  Curtis and everyone on his team have always been more than helpful.  I have tried other stabilizing resins and have found I get the best results with Cactus Juice.  If you have any problems, TurnTex Woodworks is ready to more than help you.  Since I do all my work in my shop, I rely on the best products I can get and will always use TurnTex for all my stabilizing and casting needs.

Superior Quality and Service...

How a company does business says a lot about the integrity of its ownership.  Having dealt with TurnTex over the last several years and most recently within the last month I can unequivocally vouch for their Superior Product Quality and Customer Service. Curtis and his staff are very helpful and quiding.  More so, they are nice, honest people that readily deserve your business.

Great Company!

I am new to stabilizing wood and need as much data as I can get to dive into this new phase of wood turning. I found Curtis to be a wealth of information. He is very generous with his time and knowledge. I am glad I contacted him and am looking forward to processing my first batch of stabilized blanks. I have a bunch of wood that looks like it will be fantastic But it is in need of stabilization to become a high quality pen. TurnTex is easy to do business with and they have a stellar reputation among wood turners. 

Thanks Curtis. I’ll circle back once I have some stuff processed and turned to let you know how it all worked out.

amount of part B

i just got time to open shipment from you surprised to find that the jug of part B was not as full as part A poured out part A till jug was same level as part B surprised that there was about 250 grams less in part B jug no spillage in shipment so the jug was not filled at your end very disappointed because this will short me at the end of the jugs cant be that much of a weight different between part A and part B

My comment:  Alumilite Clear is sold by weight, not volume.  You ordered an 8# kit which is 4# of A and 4# of B as stated in the description.  Part B of Alumilite has a higher specific gravity and, as such, will have less in the bottle.  This is why Alumilite Clear is ONLY to be mixed by weight and not volume.  I guarantee the bottle was filled properly and that you will end up with just the right amount when you finish the jugs!

Amazing service!

Curtis definitely goes above and beyond to take care of his customers. After I trashed a gallon of Cactus Juice, which was my fault, he still gave me a discount on another gallon. I did not expect that. I have used several gallons of this stuff and will continue to do so. Great product, great service! Thanks Curtis!

Ordered 2 gallons of Cactus Juice and 2 Dyes.  Shipment arrived in time as stated and was package very well.  I know that I can purchase from TurnTex with confidence knowing I will receive what I ordered, and if there are any issues Curtis will always makes good on his word.  What more could you ask for.  I still have another preorder that I am waiting on, and to me it is worth the wait.
