I really like the Texas Hybrid pen blanks. I only found out about them this year and have had very good success selling them at shows. I only put them in high end pens because they deserve it. The quality is great and delivery is always prompt. Thanks, Curt Norman from Omaha…

Cactus Juice continues to be an integral part of our knife manufacturing process. It gives our scales the stability we require and allows them to be polished to a high luster. And, thank you Curtis for your prompt considerate service. Your attention to detail and our ever growing needs is unsurpassed.

Thank you for an outstanding product. We make game calls and other wood items. This helps so much as far as making burl and other wood usable. Very fast shipping also. I will post some pictures soon.

I just wanted to comment on Curtis' customer support. He kept me informed on the progress of my order and provided good follow up. He is prompt with orders as I ordered 2 more gallons of cactus juice. He was also very helpful as I had a small issue with my small insert and he is replacing it. I do recommend his products as I turned my first batch of spalted hackberry and Osage. I am trying some elk antler today. Thanks Curtis for all your support.8)

Hey guys several months ago my company decided to change from Ultraseal to Cactus Juice and my customer feed back has been very positive,the difference between the two is great. The Cactus Juice produces a harder more user friendly block,with less gumming up of your belts.keep up the good work.

I enjoyed very much dealing with Mr. Seebeck. Curtis is an old school guy who's handshake is worth more than any contract printed on paper. He strives to provide any information you need or materials he can provide at the very best prices he can manage while still making a dollar or two for himself. He actually understands what CUSTOMER service means. He stands behind his products and will help you any way he can. I wish more companies operated that way.

Curtis was an invaluable resource while learning the stabilizing and casting process. Having just basically tripped across these processes while visiting different forums, I was captivated by the prospects immediately. Curtis walked me through all of the processes including the vacuum purchase, pressure pot purchase along with all of the ancillary necessities. I purchased the large vacuum chamber and cactus juice, and have had good success thus far stabilizing what would otherwise be useless pieces of wood. I highly recommend Turntex products, and really appreciate all of the valuable information that Curtis passed on.

My order came in pretty quick and Curtis sent it uncatalized which was perfect for me. I wanted it uncatilized as I will be delayed using it for a little while. I had failed to remember to ask for it uncatilized but meant to. Curtis pulled it out for me and I got exactly what I wanted. You can't ask for better service or help than Curtis has given. Thanks Curtis:)

Hello Curtis, So I used cactus juice on a small punk wood bowl and it turned like butter. I mentioned to you that I would show a piece at the Best of the Northwest art show in Seattle and I did. It was a sample piece just to show other wood workers how good your product could save the punky wood. Well people, customers, loved it. Eventually a lady insisted on buying it. Thanks again for your good service and cactus juice. Nathan

Works as advertised. I was surprised how normal the wood looked when I cut it open. So as an expeiment I put in some blue dye and ran another batch. When I cut open one of the blanks it was blue all the way through. Definitely penetrated the wood. Curtis is a very straight forward person to deal with. I look forward to doing much business with

I have been using TurnTex blanks for years and I always been well satisfied, recently I decided to try stabilizing with Cactus Juice, Curtis was extremely helpful in getting me started on the right path. Cactus Juice is every thing that it is advertised be and then some. First blank came out perfect, as good as a professionally stabilized blank.

I love the blanks I got from you. I don't even think the words beautiful or gorgeous are good enough to describe them. They are absolutely stunning. I am so happy to have some of your blanks, Curtis. I wish I could have had first chance at ordering more. By the time I find out you have more, the ones I want are already gone.

I am a frequent customer with TurnTex! I am ALWAYS treated like someone special. You don't find service and follow-up calls from other places. As a dentist with pen making as a hobby, high quality and 100% dependability on products is important. Each and every item I've ever purchased is quality and way above what is generally found at other pen supply companies. With Every Best Wish, Keep it up. Rolando:D

I have watched a few videos on the cactus juice and stabilising techniques. We don't have much in the way of product here in Australia and seem to be a little behind in this field. I thought getting product into the country may have been a hassle, but I am happy to say that ordering and delivery where smooth and very fast. I am extremely happy with the product and exceptionally happy with the service. Well done Mesquiteman...

Curtis: Tried your product this afternoon, worked excellent, right up to my expectations. Stabilized some very spalted birch that I would not have been able to use otherwise. Definitely good stuff, will be ordering more in the near future. many thks for your time and development of your product. Dave

What a great product! I make reel seat inserts for bamboo fly rods and needed something to stabilize the wood and was told about Cactus Juice from a friend. I ordered a gallon, Curtis called to let me know he was out of the gallon catalizers but could ship 2 1/2 gallon catalizers if that was okay with me. I received the Cactus Juice in 3 days. I have since tried out the Cactus Juice and am very pleased with the results.

I have some old Oak and Hickory limb wood that has come down on the 5 acres I live on by ice storms and tornadoes. Some of it has spalted and most of it runs from mildly punky to almost all punky. I have been wanting to stabilize it so I can turn it rather than burn it but the options for good stabilizers is very limited at best. I've already made my vacuum chambers but have been waiting for an affordable stabilizer. Then I found Mesquite Man's Cactus Juice on line. Being the skeptical sort I was hesitant to try it but after reading all of the detailed information Curtis has provided on this product I decided to buy a quart and give it a try. The directions are very straightforward and easy to understand. I stabilized three pieces of spalted and semi-punky Oak limb to try for bottle stoppers. The results were BETTER than expected!!! I was so pleased with the results that I've ordered a half gallon of Cactus Juice...I have lots of limb wood to use and plan on trying a few pieces of Red Cedar limb wood that I have a ton of. Cactus Juice is an awesome product that gives excellent results, I would NOT hesitate one bit in recommending it!! And the customer service that Curtis provides is wonderful...Thank You Curtis. Give it a try, I'm sure you will be as pleased as I am with the results.

I make knives. I often use wood in building handles. I have lots of beautiful figured wood that is not stabilized, but am reluctant to use it. A knife, while a beautiful object, is first and foremost a tool that needs to hold up under tough conditions without the handle denting,cracking or splitting. Before shipping my material out to a wood stabilizing company, I thought I'd give cactus juice a try. I'm glad I did. I'm very impressed so far, and have seen vast improvements in the weight and density of the cactus juice treated wood over the untreated wood. I think this may be a great low cost solution to providing excellent quality to my customers, while allowing me design flexibility. Thanks!

After watching Curtis' videos and reading all the info I could find regarding the "Cactus Juice" process I ordered the large chamber and supplies. I am well pleased with the process and the end result. Also you would have to look a long time to find someone as nice to do business with as Curtis. So far I have stabilized some camel bone and Hackberry wood. I found a dead tree that I figured was to close to rotten to even think about using. After treating with cactus juice it is as solid as new wood. I am well pleased with the whole set-up.

Great Customer service. Both orders shipped the following day after I ordered it. The dye has been fun to play with and the Cactus Juice works really well. At this rate I will have every piece of wood I own stabilized within a couple of weeks.

I produce wood turned art and collect the raw logs for my work. In the process some of the wood is aged to get the great spalting affect. Needless to say some of the wood is lost because it gets punky and almost impossible to turn, even though it is beautiful. I found "Cactus Juice" stabilizer on the internet at turntex.com along with the equipment to stabilize that punk wood. In my research it appeared to be the best solution to my problem. I ordered 1 gal. of juice and the large vacuum unit. Curtis was great to get it out to me quickly so I could salvage the beautiful punk wood. Well I couldn't be more pleased. Just finished my first piece using "Cactus Juice" and WOW. It allowed me to turn that punk wood like butter, easy to finish and with walls of of 1/8" thick. Virtually impossible before. I am a fan of not only the "Cactus Juice" but the quality of the vacuum chamber is on spot. Excellent job Curtis!!! "Cactus Juice" is a permanent part of my product line. Nathan

Curtis, Thanks for your quick response on my first order of Cactus Juice. Also, I appreciate your helpful tips during our phone conversation. Attached is a picture showing my first two calls that were stabilized using your product. The blue one is spalted white oak dyed blue and the second one is black cherry stabilized with clear juice. The dyeing is going to open up a whole new dimension to my call making hobby! Thanks, Wayne [img]http://i1225.photobucket.com/albums/ee394/gwinzer/DSCN0001.jpg[/img]

I am in the process of going through my 2nd gallon of Cactus Juice. I have found Curtis to be an eager help in helping me to troubleshoot some of my issues. The problems I have encountered are related to me and not the product. Curtis has helped point me in the proper direction for quality tools. Stabilizing in the small shop is also a skill to be learned. Curtis helps make that learning process go a little smoother.
