Customer Comments

I waited a while for my stabilizer but it was worth it. I blew thru 2 gallons of juice in a week and ordered 4 more gallons. Received them in a few days and went thru another gallon. Super fast service. Curtis has returned every call and let me pick his brain for info and tips every time I called. I've already made enough blocks and scales for probably more knives than my bud and me could make in a life time- but now I have amazing wood for horse trading! Product is top notch-easy to work with and works as said it would. Next run will be bone and antler then fossil mammoth.

I purchased the round vacuum chamber and it was well worth waiting for. In fact, after stabilizing my first small batch of wood, I ordered another gallon of Cactus Juice! My rig included all the gauges, etc. needed, so all I had to do was connect it to the vacuum pump (I bought the Robinair model that Curtis recommended) and go. It worked flawlessly. I also purchased some of the dyes... the droppers dispense TINY amounts of dye. If you try to make the hole any bigger, use caution - it's a two-part bottle. Don't ask me how I know this. By the way, a product called Reduran removes dyes from skin very effectively - Curtis - you might want to add this to your line of products. :D Bottom line -- I highly recommend the vacuum chamber and the Cactus Juice resin. Will definitely be a repeat customer!

I enjoy all the educational videos on your site and have referenced them several times. My order was promptly sent, arrived when expected. I have stabilized my first batch, which did well, but I had a bit of a learning curve, so my future batches will be great. Thanks for a great product, great service and great videos.

Curtis was fast; my order came within a week. One item was back-ordered and came within another week or so. I am really looking forward to trying this project out, and while there have been some delays, Curtis has not been one of them! Thank you Curtis!

I've had my Juice Proof chamber for about a month and have only ran 2 batches of pens blanks. 100% satisfied with both the chamber and the cactus juice. This is not only a result of the products performance but of the amount of support information and directions Curtis has made available on the internet. To be perfectly honest I must add one negative comment. The wait from placing my order to receiving my chamber was excessive as I waited months instead of weeks. That is behind me now and I'm looking forward to years of expanding my wood turning capabilities using Turn-Tex products. Recently I placed an order for more Cactus Juice and received it in a matter of days and without damage. I followed the shipment through 10 UPS depots and fully expected to receive a wet box and empty jug. That's what I call a modern miracle!!!

Absolutely the best customer service I've had from anybody I've dealt with. During a phone call, Curtis took the time to go over all the details of the stabilizing process with me. He pointed out many of the subtle details I wasn't aware of.

Very happy with my purchase of my stabilizing chamber. Curtis is very helpful with the information I need. When I need more juice it ships quick. Being that I'm in Texas as well ground shipping is pretty much overnight. I will continue to purchase his products and Cactus Juice.

I really enjoy using this product for my hobby business. It's easy to use, safe, and a great quality. One of the best features is the cost savings on stabilizing wood. I don’t purchase $5-$8 blanks anymore. My goal is to use only native woods from my local area. I enjoy studying the types of wood, going to the woods to hunt specific species, the best kind to use. So far I have gathered Live Oak, Hackberry, Mulberry, Beech, Dogwood, Magnolia, Red Oak, Elm, Weeping Willow, Pecan, etc. Try buying all that off the web in stabilized; it would cost you a small fortune. The Cactus juice makes available a uniqueness to your pen turning and wine bottle stopper practice that no other product could, it also greatly adds to my profit margin My clients bring me tree limbs or specific woods from great grand parent’s property, old church pews they sat on as a child, old furniture of sentimental value. The pen becomes a memorabilia Using “Cactus Juice” has made my hobby a standout among all other wood turners

I am impressed with the service Curtis has provided to me. Besides answering my questions to help me get started as a novice at stabilizing wood, he makes sure his customers are fully satisfied with the results. I recently placed an order which was delayed because a technical problem. Curtis more than made up for the delay by enclosing a surprise gift with the delivery, his way of making sure his customers are happy. Besides having a great easy to use product, Curtis is an honest straight forward person. It is great doing business with him.

The products have all worked extremely well and the end results have been outstanding. (See what we are doing at www.facebook.com/lone.jackforge) However, I would say that the most valuable of services we have received has been the Q/A sessions with Curtis. He is very gracious in sharing his time and knowledge in the world of stabilizing. And bottom line, we are selling products two weeks after we began. Can't beat that!

I received my order of "Texas Hybrid" blanks in just a few days and the email communications with updates were great. The blanks were even more beautiful in person than on the website. I turned a few of them that day and the resin Curtis uses cuts and turns like butter. The Texas woods and resins he uses are unique and better looking than most of the imported exotics. Great for high end pens. I receive more positive comments on the pens made with these blanks than on all the others I ever made combined! I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks for a great product, I recommended your site to all my friends.

Cactus Juice is a fantastic product that I would recommend to anyone wanting to save any brittle or soft material. Its a pity there are no products like this in the UK, but the shipping is fast and so I am happy for TurnTex to have my business ;-)

I can readily recommend TurnTex products to anyone who wants to take their turning experience to the next level. I have numerous blanks in my shop which will be stabilized using a TurnTex commercial chamber and Cactus Juice. These blanks would ordinarily be too soft and punky to turn so this is a great plus for me. Curtis is a meticulous craftsman and the fit and finish of his chamber is top shelf all the way. His guarantee is industry leading so you can't go wrong buying from him. His product line has him very busy with lots of orders so you will have to be patient. However, your patience will be well worth it when you get your chamber. Happy turning to all. Walt M.

Going on my fourth gallon of Cactus Juice (C.J.) and still nothing to complain about! Just TOTALY SATISFIED with the product, support and the integrity of TurnTex's owner, Curtis. I am on my 38th pen for FREEDOM PENS and this process of using C.J. has just gotten better when I use local wood. Figuring in the cost of the C.J., shipping, my time, and still I make money reclaiming FREE local wood and juicing them up, versus a pre-made blank. :D Thanks for the GREAT Customer Service.

I got my juice order in a timely manner. I am using it to stabilize wood used in Traditional bow risers. I put the juice to work soon after getting it. I have used it on Zebrawood a thin piece of osage and a sizeable piece of birdseye maple. Just a word of caution. I got some of the resin in my vacuum pump (my fault) It lockrd the pump up.So my thoughts would be to use a catch chamber between your main vacuum chamber and your vacuum pump just for safety to the vacuum pump.

This stuff rocks! My buddy gave me severely spalted hackberry that he wanted pens from. It was impossible without Cactus Juice. Curtis Rocks! When my vacuum chamber stabilization didn't seem to work, Curtis gave some timely advice and my latest batch came out PERFECT! Can't wait to see my friend's face for his new pen. Next up, casting blanks like Curtis does... Thank you, thank you and thank you!

I bought a quart first time liked it so well I bought a gallon along with some colored dyes excellent product but the jug it came in leaked in the seams so I lost about a quarter of the product other than that all good. Rick Busch [color=red]My note: I am sorry for the trouble with the leaking bottle. We try to package everything to withstand the rigors of shipping but occasionally things happen. I suspect we had a weak bottle which allowed for the leak. A coupon code has been sent to you by e-mail to compensate you for the lost Juice on your next order. Again, my apologies.[/color]

Awesome Customer Service Curtis!!! I had some questions regarding some resin we had purchased last year. No sooner did I hang up the phone Curtis called me right back and answered all my questions and then some. Our new order was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition.We stabilized some Buckeye burl the other day and it turned out very nice with the dye (blue) penetrating all the way through showing it was completely stabilized.We will be long time Customers....
