I did not expect to be stabilizing wood 4 days after I ordered a gallon of Cactus Juice, BUT I WAS!!!! Unbelievable shipping response. Everything arrived as promised.

This is my second purchase from Curtis and TurnTex. I bought a chamber and a gallon of Cactus Juice after it was recommended to me by a bazillion people. I tried it out and tested it for my Website. I was very impressed by the quality and value of the purchase. I recently bought 4 more gallons of Cactus Juice since I have come to use the Chamber a lot. The shipment went right out when I ordered it just like the first one. Curtis saved me some money on the shipping which lowered my costs even more. I highly recommend TurnTex for all your stabilizing and dying needs.

I cannot say enough good things about Curtis and Turn Tex Woodworks. He offers outstanding products, reasonable prices, great packing, and fast shipping. But, it is really the service after the sale that is truly outstanding. He personally answers questions by phone, and in fact encourages calling if you are having any problems. He spends considerable time to be sure that you fully understand his explanations. He obviously has a desire to pass along his vast knowledge on the subject of resin stabilization of wood, turning techniques, and related subjects. Turn Tex gets my highest recommendation.

I have three of your Round "juice proof" chambers and each work perfectly. The most resent being a 6" diameter X 12" tall one. That one saves me lots of time and work. Love it. These chambers are well built and I am pleased with each of them. Thank you Curtis for making a quality USA product that I can trust. Ray

I bought the resin and for me it is the best and the less expansive (about the other products in France), i never got any problem. Everything is perfect and i don't want change.

Curtis makes a superior product in his newly redesigned vertical tube chamber. It works exactly as advertised. It is priced below what he could get for it, but don't raise your prices Curtis! The documentation could be better. I learned more about how to use it in a telephone conversation with Curtis than from the printed instructions. Anyone looking for wood stabilization for the small wood shot cannot go wrong with the hardware or the Cactus Juice.

Curtis I just though I mite drop you a line so I could let the rest of the world know how happy we have been with your system. since we started using Cactus Juice about three years ago our knife sales have increased about 45%. the Quality of our blanks have increased 100% we produce about 15 to 20 knifes a week and over 1/2 of them are with stabilized materials. We have been dyeing just about every type of wood you can think of. we have stabilized everything from bone to brain coral. still haven't found anything that it doesn't work well on, The chamber that we purchase from you over three years ago has hundreds of uses on it and it is holding up just fine. When we have questions you are only a phone call away with the answers. We here at LCL Hunting want to extend a big thank you out to turn Tex for helping us grow our knife business. Keep up the good work Curtis. If anybody else out there has any questions about our experiences with Cactus Juice or turn tex please feel free to call me 303 419 2184 Chris Lopez Pres. Of marketing and sales LCL Hunting. Thanks again Curtis

I purchased the 10in Juice Proof container and a gallon of Cactus Juice. It's fantastic. I've done two batches of spalted Maple and they've turned out great. The container is solidly built, easy to use, and clean up is a breeze. I'm very happy with this product. Thank you.

Met Curtis of TurnTex at the SWAT symposium in Waco Tx. We talked for several hours off and on about the stabilization process. I ended up buying a chamber from him that day. Works great!! The clear chamber makes it simple to control foaming as the vacuum is drawn down and easy to see when all the air is finally out of the blanks. Great guy with a great product.

I tried another company's Stabilizing Resin as it was easy to get locally at one of the chain stores. The instructions that came with it were wrong in that the catalyst resin wasn't packaged as it stated. I called on a Friday afternoon and ended up waiting all weekend to get help. They explained when they called me back that they had changed the packaging just not the instructions. I called to order cactus juice instead this time and figured id leave a message as it was 8 at night. But they answered and helped me get the right thing. Now that is service.

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 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

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
