Amazing service and products

Whatban awesome experience. As a relatively new pen turner all my questions and concerns were answered within 6 hours. The products were shipped the same day and were at my door 2 days later. The alumilite dyes are really vibrant concentrated. I will purchase from this business again.

GREAT COMPANY

I have placed several orders for Cactus Juice over the last 8 or nine years and it is always a quick and easy transaction. I ordered my last gallon on 1/15/19 at 21:30. It shipped on 1/16 at 10:45. Great service. Great product. I'll be back for more!

Terrific Support!

I always get a little nervous order stuff like this through the mail because I'm afraid of it getting damaged and breaking open, but  they really took great care to make sure that wouldn't happen. My CJ shipped quickly and painlessly and arrived safely. The stabilization process only seems intimidating, but after watching the video and reading through their support section, I was ready to go. They also have a very active Facebook group that Curtis personally monitors and posts to. Added bonus: he keeps it spam free. I did a lot of research on stabilizing before jumping in and now that I'm doing it, it's a blast! I chose TurnTex based on the recommendation of a lot of YouTubers that I trust (Zac Higgins et al) and because it cures clear and won't tint the wood. That you're supporting an actual small business that in turn supports their product is a bonus.

 

Cons: you'll be looking around for what else you can stabilize.

Very happy with Cactus Juice

This was my second order of Cactus Juice from TurnTex. I got a smaller bottle the first time, but was so happy with the results and long shelf life of the product, I went for a 2-gallon order. I have used the Cactus Juice with Alumilite dyes to double-dye some burl for turning. I have been very happy with the results. Shipping was fast, and product was well packaged. I look forward to purchasing from TurnTex again in the future. Matthew D.

Custom knife handle material

We've been working with TurnTex for about a year and have never had anything but the best customer service. Whether we're ordering Cactus Juice, Alumilite resin, dyes, or asking questions, we always get the best service and excellent delivery times.

Knowledgeable & Honest

I’ve Done business with Mr. Seebeck on several occasions.

after having to stop my wood working do to some family illnesse.I had a couple of gallons of un mixed Cactus juice that had been sitting for around two years.

I contacted Mr. Seebeck asking if I need to purchase new activator.  

He informed me it was good for 3 years un Activated As long as it was stored correctly.  I like & respect him for not trying to sell me stuff I don’t need.

 

I set up a new chamber and ordered new hoses & valves along with a new Vacuum gauge. It shipped fast and in perfect condition.

 

there are many knock offs & copycats out there but you won’t get the quality workmanship , Shared knowledge or  customer Service anywhere .  Curtis has my business as long as I’m stabilizing & casting.

Great Service

Received my order very quickly and in addition to the great service as I read the enclosed Cactus Juice instructions I noticed an outstanding offer of support from Curtis (Owner of TurnTex).  Rare these days to find someone fully prepared to stand behind his products and offer phone support to his customer.

No wonder the folks at IAP think so highly of Curtis and his vast experience!  I will be sure to take you up on his offer if I run into any problems or have any questions (good to know trivial beginner questions are not judged).

 
Thanks again,

Vacuum chamber

Got my chamber in and my cactus juice. Was very pleased with the communication during the lead time. It came ready to use, after hooking up a single hose and worked like a charm! I definitely can't wait to get more experienced so I can start doing some colors. 10/10 would recommend

Great product!

If your looking at getting into stabilizing your own wood look no further than Turn Tex woodworks!

The only thing better than the product is the product support you get with this company.

In short, they are the very best!

Outstanding Service!

Curtis helped me in almost every step of the way. From ordering the product right up to the delivery to my door! On New Year's Eve no less! He even provided a location of the product when it was delayed by a weather event. His 'one on one' customer satisfaction promise and demeanor are second to none.  His product performed perfectly as advertised. I will order again and again from Mr. Seebeck for his customer service alone, not to mention a great product.  The Cactus Juice came packaged well, and the instructions for mixing and preparing the product for use were clear and concise. Well done Mr. Seebeck....well done!

Great Documentation

Aside from the product being great and easy to use. The best part about ordering from TurnTex are the fantastic instructions and documentation.  They are clear and extremely helpful for people new to stabilizing products.

Keep up the good work!

Stabilization Chamber

I purchased the 16” wood stabilization chamber. As Curtis states, he puts the time in the details. The chamber looks and works great right out of the box.. Packaging was also top notch, as nothing was damaged during shipping.

I’ve had the chamber 3 days, and have run 3 batches of wood, one per day.. 

I was also impressed with the Cactus Juice.. Did my first double dye and they came out great..

Amazing products

I purchased an oven tamer and stabilizing chamber and love both of them. The tamer keeps my oven at the exact temp I set it at and the chamber is working great. The thing I like the best however is the instructions that come with the products and all the support you get from the Q&As that are available and Curtis’s live support if you need.

My #1 'Go To' for all Resin Related products!

I only started working with resin crafts about 6 months ago and quickly learned that TurnTex provides the very best products available!  From their 'Cactus Juice' stabilizing resin to their slow-set 2-part casting resins.  I've already placed several orders with Curtis and his gang and will continue to do so in the months ahead.

Great service

The Turn-Tex crew was on the ball--as normal!!  Fresh Cactus Juice shipped within a few hours of the order.  Just be sure to allow time for ground transit--it won't move like priority mail.

Filling in the cracks

I purchased your casting resin to fill in some checking on some spalded maple rounds in a bar that I am making. I also ordered several color additives and metallics. I am very happy with the results of my order, I received the order in a timely manner and the product filled the checking cracks in the bar with no nasty smell.  I cannot comment on the finishing properties of the material as I am still taking care of several small cracks in the bar. My only suggestion would be that at least in my case, I did not want to get out a whole bunch of equipment to measure small amounts to mix, so I ended up guesstimating the 1 to 1 by weight ratio.  Even though it seems to be working out well so far, if there were volumetric guidelines or simply marks on the containers for parts A and B it would be a help, but again so far so good, I love the product so far and will order more when I need it.

Cactus Juice

Ordered Cactus Juice after attempting to purchase similar product from China. As I live in Hong Kong delivery fees from China are very low, so paying for shipping from USA is always a bit of a pain. BUt, delivery was prompt and I am ready to start stabilizing. I brought a watermelon sized chunk of cypress burl back from Taiwan years ago. Have made many fine things...and now it's time to work with the precious offcuts. Will keep you updated, once I start stabilizing.Great service and communication from Turntex....Thanks

Oventamer II rocks

Cactus Juice And epoxy

the catcus juice works very good however, i recently purchased a two gal kit of epoxy from you and the part B has hardened up to where it cannot be used. I did what you said on your website with the hot water but, it still never gets liquid enough to use. It’s just a thick gel and I have a half of gal left. Do you sell just the part B so I dont have to purchase both parts again?

Excellent products

I found out about Alumilie and Cactus Juice through Zac Higgins YouTube channel.  Products are just as good as I’ve heard they were, and I’ve had nothing but good experiences so far.  Great company, great products.  Already on my second order of Alumilite, we are having so much fun working with it.

Cactus Juice Dyes

Brilliant product that complements an outstanding must have item for pen turning or what ever your fancy.  Took a while to land in Oz but that was through no fault of Turntex.  I will be back soon.

Awesome

I had read about Cactus Juicue however I was a little skeptical, as a friend of mine said he had tried to die some wood and it didn’t work. Well  i Found that if you follow Curtis’s instructions the stuff works great.  i  dyed hard maple blue and it is great the color goes completely through it, I have turned it on the lathe sanded it and polished it just looks great.

 

Curtis thanks for a great product.
