Sorry Curtis I forget to leave some feed back. What can I say its been about 5 years since we started doing business together and I got my first gal of cactus juice. since than I have ordered several gals and a few different chambers. I cant say enough about your newest chambers. they are perfect and so easy to clean. some days I mite run as many as 8-to 10 different batches of wood during a day.my competition has been blown away they can't compete with the type of scales we are producing. and at the cost we are making them for all thanks to cactus juice. Thanks again Curtis you should see another order soon. Log in to our web site and see some of the new stuff we have been making lclhuntingshop.com

I use wood, antler, and horn for knife handles and use Cactus Juice to stabilize those natural materials. I learned how to do this from reading on the internet (many sources) and watching videos on the Turntex website. Turntex products are great! They are easy to use, cost effective, and extraordinarily effective. His videos are very informative and easy to understand. I have been totally satisfied with Turntex products (vacuum chamber and all accessories and the Cactus Juice itself) and plan to buy more juice. If there is a need to stabilize porous materials, Turntex is the answer.

Great communication, prompt delivery and well packaged. Both the Cactus Juice and vacuum vessel/valve etc are performing as required, I wish I heard about Turntex 3 years ago! I was able to order a slightly longer vessel as my blades have huge handles, I was running out of the box in about 10 mins even with the need to heat shrink a piece of tube to fit the one supplied, in all a great service with a personal touch.

Curtis is a pleasure to work with. My Cactus Juice order was here within a couple of days. The resin itself is great for stabilizing exotic hardwoods for custom cutlery. It is easy to work with and the wood retains its color and character. I highly recommend TurnTex and the products he sells.

Always have a great experience with turntex and Curtis. I even messed my order up last time and they got it sorted and sent out correct with no issues. When I've had problems with my method of getting everything right CURTIS has always taken time to help. Can't say enough positive things about this company!

The owner Curtis actually called me while I was in my shop to answer a question I had. Seriously, how many owners would take the time and have the patience to talk to his customers like he did in my case? What a fantastic guy and he was able to break down the process is layman's terms so I could understand LOL. In addition, his product is bar none the best on the market! Darrin S.

Curtis, I appreciate your quick response to my question re: the casting resin and dye. Your shipping with good will is much appreciated as I have done the same for my customers who have purchased pens and etc. from me. The quality of the products make them very easy to work with and your willingness to share your knowledge is very helpful. Thank you for the integrity you have. Dave Hunter HunterMadeProducts

Incredible product! I'm a forester and I make duck calls. I specifically look for spalted and rotting wood. Cactus Juice turns the punkiest and most rotten wood into a solid and beautiful and usable product.

I have been using cactus juice now for about two years. The only problems I've had were my own fault, which after talking with Curtis on the phone I got straightened out immediately. Great product, great service, couldn't ask for a better experience all around. I will continue to trade with Curtis for as long as he is in business!

Great service. Order was here in 2 days. The only problem was there was some leakage due to loose bottle caps. When I emailed was told that you have switched back to your original cap supplier and you would give me a discount coupon for my next order.

I have been using the Turn Tex vacuum chamber for a few years now and while I have have some problems over the years I must say that customer service has been great. With my latest order of Cactus Juice, I again had a small problem. The gallon bottle of Juice leaked during transit (only lost a little bit of liquid). However, because of the way that the bottle was packaged (wrapped in a heavy plastic bag with double-sealed top which was itself contained in another heavy plastic bag and then boxed), the mess was well contained and easy to clean up. The system works great with the newer design being a big improvement over the original. While it may not always be perfect, Curtis always goes the extra mile to make things right.

A friend introduced me to pen making just as I was retiring, and it fit right in with resurrecting a few old hobbies that had been shelved for a while. I'm new at it, but I love it. It is very satisfying when the final product comes out well or even better than you expected. Your Cactus Juice and your service has been better than expected, adding more pleasure to the experience of pen making. I look forward to talking with you (as I do have questions) and purchasing from you again in the future. Ken

This is my first order of cactus juice so I ordered the smallest amount to see if I like it. I like the product and I will be ordering more in the future. The only issue I had was the bottle leaked during shipping. I'm not sure of the amount that leaked out because I don't know how much there was to begin with. Great product though.

As we refine our stabilization process we learn more each day. Ordered another two gallons of CJ for moving into dyed woods. The order was handled promptly and I received the products very quickly. \r\n\r\nI would like to recommend that we add a user group to the TT web site.. It would be quite beneficial to be able to exchange Ideas and experiences with the products.\r\n\r\nAnother useful piece of information would be to maintain a list of various woods and the characteristics that would inform if the wood was a good candidate for stabilization, and if so, recommendations on techniques for straight, single dye, multi-dye.

You cannot ask for better customer service! I had an issue that I could not figure out. I left a message for Curtis. He called me back within a reasonable amount of time. We brainstormed a solution and he sent me free replacement material. What else could I ask for! Thank you for the great service.\r\nRegards,\r\nGreg W.

Curtis consistently delivers on being able to provide the best value with his Cactus Juice, and trumps that with invaluable advice on using it from both practical and artistic perspectives, including help with his packaged chambers or your own. Truly, there are fewer and fewer longstanding businesses around where you call and the person who answers the phone is the one who knows the answers from first hand experience. And, Turntex guarantees are the best around! Thank you Curtis, and best of continued success with Turntex!!

Highly satisfied with the service and products. I'm a custom knife maker and yes I could buy stabilized wood from several suppliers. However, I like to learn and use new products and I really like the Cactus Juice. Used it for the first time today and happy as heck. Sorry, but I had to go with another site for a vacuum chamber. I needed at least 9 inches in diameter and about 9 inches deep. Cooking my second batch now, the Juice is the way to go.

Back for more "Juice" What can I say, I found this stuff years ago and haven't found anything close to it\s performance. It works. If you intend to use this stuff often. Buy a minimum of 1 gallon. A Gallon does an awful lot of pen blanks and knife scales. You will find other use's too. That Gallon won't be around long. As for Curtis, the guy is class. Period. Shipping is fast, always. Got a question, he knows the answer! If he doesn't know the answer, you don't need to know it either!

I have been very happy with the service from TurnTex Woodworks. The timing of the shipping and the customer service is fantastic. I generally receive a notification the day of purchase that the product is has been shipped. I also find that the product I purchased is always ready to be used and is a very good product. I use the Cactus Juice and add dyes to stabilize wood for knife handles and pens. This product is fantastic and top notch.

I have used TurnTex exclusively for my wood stabilization needs. The products are great, and the service is outstanding! Curtis, the owner, is never to busy to answer questions or help when the need arises. I am confident that if you ask any wood turner where to go for wood stabilization, Curtis/TurnTex will be at the top of their list!\r\n\r\nMark\r\nPenTactix.com

Curtis, this is my 2nd order for the Cactus Juice. This order arrived with my mail, late in the evening. I did what every wood butcher would do, started vacuuming a bowl blank. Once again it worked beautifully. Tonight I just finished cooking a piece of drift wood that looks like a bird and has become so punky that I would not let anyone touch it, it came out as if it were petrified. Thank you for the great product and the fast shipping. I'll order again. Stan

This is a great product. I have ordered twice now, and shipping was quick. I just used it to stabilize a 3x6x6 spalted maple bowl blank that was very punky. The product worked perfectly, so I was able to turn a beautiful bowl. It would have disintegrated on the lathe otherwise. I will use this product for all of my stabilization needs. Good show.

When you purchase a TurnTex stabilizing system you're not just getting the best system on the market but the best customer service before, during and after the sale. Having the right equipment is only part of the process. The right information can be the difference between success and failure. Curtis is always just a phone call away, ready to answer your questions and guide you through the process. It's well worth the wait to go with a TurnTex system!

After building my own vacuum chamber with some pointers from Curtis, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered some cactus juice. Still have not had the time to try it out, but I can say the ordering and shipping process were quite pleasant. Product arrived in short order as promised.\r\nOne suggestion: It would be nice if we could get the activator in 2 or more smaller bottles so that we can activate smaller amounts of juice to make it last longer.\r\nOverall, I am quite happy with the product and service.

Cactus Juice seems to exactly as claimed. I bought a setup to stabilize wood because I had some buckeye burl pen blanks that were to nice to sit in the shelf any longer. After a few hours in CJ and then the toaster oven the blanks are solid and hard and turned like a dream! \r\n\r\nThanks Curtis!
