I had an issue with one batch of the product which I wasn't sure if it was my fault or the CJ but I commented on Social Media and Curtis without hesitation made me aware that a new gallon was in the mail already to me. His customer service is unmatched in the industry. Thanks again for the great service you provide!

Best Customer Service you will ever come across and the product that I ordered, arrived very quickly. I did a bit of research on stabilizing material for knife scales before my purchase and the Cactus Juice from Turntex, is one of the best products that is available. Add in the great customer service from Curtis and the decision to purchase form Turntex will be an easy one.

I purchased the round cylinder style option. Product was very well finished and has worked to perfection. I use a two stage, 3 CFM, Harbor Freight vacuum pump with unit. Pulls a dead vacuum right out of the box. Came with all the fitting needed and no leaks. Pulls a vacuum so hard that oils in the wood actually came out of the wood and into the juice. I use this to stabilize very punky and marbled woods for inlay purposes in luthiery work. Owner keep my apprised as to where the product was in the build the entire time. Buy with confidence.

I ordered a gallon of Cactus Juice last month and received it within a few days. I just stabilized my first batch of scrap wood (10 pen blanks cut from wood from a shipping crate) and completed a Cigar pen using one of the stabilized blanks. I used green Alumilite dye in this first batch. The pen and the blanks all turned out great. I followed Curtis's directions for the entire process and had no problems. I just got back from a week long pen turning class that Barry Gross taught at Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Indiana, and Barry demonstrated the stabilizing process as part of the class. (The class was excellent, by the way.) I'll be purchasing more Cactus Juice as soon as I finish this first gallon. Good stuff.

Used the wood stabilizer with dyes. It worked great. I am a custom knife maker and I'm always looking for handle material. I stabilized some tiger maple and it turned out beautiful. A quick polish and ready to go. thanks for a great product.

I was introduced to the process of wood stabilization by a friend and now that I have tried it on my pen blanks and knife handles I am totally sold on the process. My timber finishes are so much more professional looking, the micro cracking does not occur any more and my tools are not affected by the addition of Cactus Juice in the wood and the stabilization process is not difficult to do. Thank you Curtis for your valuable web site and follow up help when needed. Regards. Malcolm McDonald

Your service was awesome. I was impressed with the promptness getting the product to me, and I completed my first project with outstanding results. Worked exactly as advertised. My only criticism is the web site recommended that I only pay a deposit for the vacuum chamber, but in doing so it only deducted the deposit amount from the total price, and asked me to pay all but the deposit amount. This didn't make sense, so I chose to pay the entire amount. Overall, I am a very happy customer, and I will order again. ***My Comments: I am not sure what happened with your order and the deposit. I have tried to duplicate it on my end and have not been able to. I have had many customers who have only paid the deposit without any trouble. Sorry you had this experience. If I knew why, I would fix it!***

The thing I regret is I waited this long to order and try Cactus Juice. I have tried other processes but none work this simple and easy. The first piece of wood I tried was spalted White Oak for knife scales turned out great, next was spalted hack berry for a duck call the wood turned fantastic and polished out perfect. I recommend this product if you want a good solid finish on your project. Thanks

I Absolutely LOVE this stuff!! One thing: for hard woods like Koa, the times given for vacuum and soak are off. I've found, after extensive testing(and checking, double checking, and rechecking all my equipment), that a minimum of 24 hours at max achievable vacuum(29+ inhg at my location), followed by a minimum of 48 hours soak(no pressure), is necessary to achieve full 100% penetration in a 2x2x5 block of Koa. Also, a good moisture meter is VITAL to this process!! You should read 0% moisture in the block both before, and after, to achieve the best results. If your block reads moisture content after stabilizing, you didn't get 100%. Thank you guys for such an amazing product!!!!!

I received my order of Cactus Juice, wrapped nicely in a plastic bag. I openned the bag and there was no leakage. I put the Cactus Juice to work on some Grape Vine wood that I got from a friend. The wood was soft with cracks and voids from knots. After running through the process of stabilizing and cooking, the wood turned nicely. Thanks for the great product. I will do business with you again.

I own a production size chamber with all the connections and gauges pre-installed it is wonderful! I can stabilize pen blanks, knife blanks and even medium size bowl blanks! Curtis is a tremedous resource. He uses the product he sells and is always willing to give you tips and pointers on what to do or not to do. Do not hesitate to purchase a complete system from turn tex. I tell you from experience, with service and a warrantee like Curtis O. Seebeck offers, you will not fail!

Love using the Cactus Juice and the "Juice Proof" chamber I ordered. Works amazing, straight forward and I've had any question I could ever have answered very quickly. Also using the Alumilite and again all technical questions and theories answered really quickly which has made for some amazing projects and happy clients. Will be ordering again!

This cactus juice is awesome. Ive been using minwax wood hardener and it was costing me and using lots of it. This juice I've been using it now for a week have stabilized 60 blanks and still have over a half gallon left.and I can really tell the difference when drilling and turning the blanks.the brass pen inserts hold better when super glued. I will order more of this juice. And very fast shipping. Thanks so much what a great product.

AWESOME! Besides offering great products, it's a pleasure working with Curtis. He's taken the time to provide some great answers to questions I put to him. For example, I recently asked about appropriate vacuum levels for blank stabilization. Curtis went so far as to look up the elevation above sea level for the city in which I live to determine the maximum theoretical vacuum. Now is that going the extra mile or what?!?! Oh yeah, and talk about FAST shipping, I think Curtis saw my recent order come in and he must have dropped everything, packed my order and ran to the post office because it's the only way I would have gotten my order as quickly as I did!!!!! Thanks Curtis. Keep up the good work!

I went with cactus juice because I was having trouble with the other stabalizer I was using before. I emailed Curtis with a few questions about successfully stabalizing the wood I have. He ended up calling me very soon after and we talked for a while. He gave me great information and was laid back and easy to talk to. The next day I had a perfect batch of knife scales! Thanks Curtis.
