Excellent service, above and beyond what was required. The new "Juice Proof" chamber is really nice and the hold down idea is pretty clever. Thanks Curtis, I really appreciate how quickly you filled the order and the quality of the work you do.

I recommend all of the products at Turn Tex without reservation. Recently, we ordered a 14 inch cylindrical vacuum chamber in order to stabilize knife handle blanks. So far, we have used the equipment to stabilize stag horn, Osage Orange, Paduk, Walnut, Black Locust, Persimmon and figured Hickory. ALL of these materials stabilized perfectly following the directions found on-line at Turn Tex. The materials buff out very nice and the hardness has increased significantly without brittleness. Thanks Curtis!

I ordered Cactus Juice for my high school woodshop. Kids were trying to stabilize knife scales and tool handles. Very happy with the product. Will be ordering more in the future.

I have tried every product available for stabilizing compounds, and have numerous failures with each one. Cactus Juice is the ONLY compound that has worked flawlessly every time and I have never lost any woods or products due to faulty materials. Cactus Juice will be the only compound I will ever use for all of my future stabilizing needs. Customer support is the best of anyone I have had to deal with, you have a question, or an issue, and they will do anything it takes to resolve and make you a happy customer. Highly Recommended!

We ordered the large vacuum chamber and some Cactus Juice. Try to the information on the website it took a while to receive. Once it arrived though it is quality construction and a great buy. If you have the time to wait, this is the one to buy.

Ordered a gallon of stabilizer and received my order in 3 days. My brother and I are knife builders and have found nothing better TurnTex\'s stabilizer for our blanks. This is our third gallon. The stabilizer mixes with dyes well and turns out beautiful wood scales. We also bought a vaccuum chamber from TurnTex. Rest assured TurnTex products are second to none for all your stabilizing needs.

What can you say about Curtis and his operation, other than OUTSTANDING!\r\nIt is a class act with the best communication of any other products I buy for my knife making business. As far as Cactus Juice, the best on the market hands down. Super fast service with that personal touch. Curtis treats all his customers like they are long time friends or family. I\'m sold, he has my business forever and I spread the word to other knife makers and new knife makers along the way.

I have a 10 inch tall Juice Proof chamber and like it so well that I also bought a 16 inch tall chamber. They both work superbly. The quality of these chambers is top notch and second to none.\r\nI hope to get a new 8 to 10 inch diameter chamber in the future when and if they become available.\r\nRay

Works great! Easy to use. I only have a homemade vacuum stabilization chamber but cactus juice worked much better than the minwax that i used in the past.

First time I've done any stabilizing and I picked Cactus Juice. Made my own chamber out of a large clear glass cookie jar, made a top from a plastic cutting board and a inner tube seal. Worked great. The process is easy and the blanks turned out perfect. Many thanks to TurnTex for a great product that is economical and easy to use. I am sold and will only use Cactus Juice on my blanks.

I received my order and it was all I expected and more. The system worked very well and I was impressed by the craftsmanship put into the system. The instructions were dead on and very easy to follow and the outcome was some exceptionally well stabilized wood. I couldn’t be more pleased by the system. It was well worth the wait.

Curtis and his crew are great!!! I now have a vacuum chamber and it is great.\r\nBeing in Texas, I was able to pick up my chamber directly. He gave my wife and I a tutorial and he did a great job providing advice and guidance. We tested my chamber to ensure that it works correctly. He took the time to answer all of our questions; and, at times, provided more information than we expected. His knowledge and ability of stabilizing and casting is fantastic. I highly recommend Curtis and his equipment to anybody needing to stabilize material.

Just received a shipment of 4 gallons of Cactus Juice from Curtis. Strange man this Curtis. I tried to fill out his online order blank and through user error screwed it up so just decided I would turn it off and wait for us to call each other. By the time I got hold of him on the phone the UPS truck was pulling in the yard. I doubt that type of service is available in many places.\r\n\r\nCurtis, I appreciate your service.\r\n\r\nDavid

Cactus juice is the best product for stabilizing and dying wood I have found in 20 years of looking and trying various products. There are no harsh chemicals that hurt gaskets in the vacuum pump. No toxic fumes. Items can soak for weeks if desired, where some other products have a set up time limit. Curtis is prompt with orders , good about answering questions, has reasonable shipping costs, and comes across like his customers are his fiends and it's not just about the money. This leads me to feel if there are any problems he will work them out with me. There are hefty discounts for volume orders.:D

I have been using Cactus Juice and one of his round chambers for about 6 months now and am very happy with the results and haven't had any issues what so ever. Shipping is prompt and if you need to talk to him he always will make time. If you don't get an answer just keep trying. When it comes to stabilizing he's the Man.....

Sorry I haven't done this sooner. I'm new with all this and still in the experimental stages but have been having fun with it. I refurbished and gifted an old Sabatier knife to my dad using your cactus juice to stabilize the handle. He couldn't have happier! Thank's for the tutorials and I love your products.

Works as I wanted it to and no problems with the products (Cactus Juice and chamber) at all. I would have liked more detailed instructions included on the parts and how to best use the vacuum chamber. The metal grate inside I still do not use, I am however satisfied with the results with how I do use it and it was worth the wait to get it.

I\'m a knife maker from the UK (http://www.customknivesandsticks.co.uk/) who, thanks to Curtis, got involved in stabilising my own knife handle materials and am now reaping the rewards. Yes, there are others who sell \'Stabilising\' stuff, but none compare when it comes to providing an efficient personal service as you get from Curtis. I\'ve now had the pleasure of dealing with Curtis for long enough to really appreciate the way he does business and the extent of help he so willingly provides. With some business folk you often feel that all they\'re after is as much money as they can get from you for minimal time and effort on their part. I never feel like that when dealing with Curtis; in fact I feel as if I\'m just communicating with a pal who\'s more than happy to help me out. The product is good, as is the man behind it - what else could one wish for...\r\nMany thanks Curtis - Paul

Started purchasing from Turntex just after first of the year(2014). Excellent products(cactus Juice) with excellent customer service. Phone support is free and not from India from someone reading from a manual. Direct from Mr Seebeck himself. Always friendly and never has tried to hurry me off the line but takes the time to answer my questions. Have ordered several times since then. I like the products and the customer support. A welcome place to shop and I know they are willing to assist if needed. Tony \r\nI can send pics of finished products using Cactus Juice. Not for sell just for reference only, if Turntex provides my address to you. :D

This is the first time I have used Cactus Juice, It will defiantly not be the last. Out here in western SD we have lots of wind, so I handcraft triple reed predator calls to really reach out there. I use buckeye burl and bocote for my fancy calls, without the Cactus Juice buckeye burl is about like turning paper mache. after the Cactus Juice its like turning the bocote. It's a great product and Curtis is a great guy to deal with. Highly recommended.

Nothing but great things to say about TurnTex. I ordered some cactus juice late in the afternoon, the order shipped the same day and was on my doorstep two days later. So far I've stabilized and dyed an bunch of pen blanks with great success. I will definitely do business with Curtis in the near future.

The workmanship and care with which this vacuum chamber is constructed is without equal. All seams are carefully joined and the lid has a distinctive logo carefully engraved on the upper surface. The chamber was packed with ultimate care and arrived here in pristine condition. Well worth the money spent and I am sure absolutely indestructible. Thanks for caring enough to do such a fine job.

Just got the juice proof chamber the other day, well about 2 weeks ago. I really like the new style much better than the chamber you have to clean. Much easier to pull vacuum and not worrying during the soak time is great. The way you fabricated the tube with the "O" ring in the top is really nice for removing and getting the vacuum started. The hold down system for the blocks is a stroke of genius, makes everything at the end so danged easy. Thanks for the great product. Bob Hawley

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.
