Great Service

I have been ordering Cactus Juice off and on for several years now.  It works great. My most recent order was shipped out the next day. There was a bit of a problem with the delivery which the shipping department handled efficiently and professionally. I couldn't ask for a better product or service.

Cactus Juice


This is my second order each consisting of 4 gallons of Cactus Juice and dyes.  Both shipments arrived at my destination safe and sound.

Much appreciation for the prompt shipping as the shipment was prcessed the day of the shipment.  The help center has been useful and your prompt replies to email enquiries is much appreciated.  This is called customer service which some companies are lacking.

Thanks again for your products.

Fireball Red

I bought 4 bottles of Fireball Red and put it I 1 gallon of CJ expecting it to turn some dry maple red. It turned out pink instead. Any suggestions?

As always wonderful experience

Just to let everyone know if they don't already; Curtis and his crew are a great group if people to deal with. He has awesome products and customer service that goes above and beyond. For example: I had selected the wrong color dye on my order, contacted Curtis on FB and boom fixed. Cannot recommend them enough.

Great for the impatient

Turntex has a fantastic customer service model. Curtis answered a question I had asked within 30 minutes. Then to top it off, I ordered something at 430p.m. on Friday and it was still shipped out that night. That’s better than my Amazon Prime!

Thanks again!

Cactus Juice

Prompt response to my order, one gallon container was well packaged and arrived safe.  I am a satisfied customer, but not long winded, not much to say except prompt shipping that was well packaged.

Thank You Team Turntex

Totally impressed with the customer support and communication.

Placed my order, got notified it was going into production and if I still required the product, paid and then I was notified it was ready to be shipped, can't wait to get to using it.

Excellent service and products

I ordered a Juice Proof stabilizing chamber at the end of August 2018. I was aware of the 6 week lead time and was mire than willing to wait instead of purchasing another's stabilizing chamber. This is my second TurnTex chamber so I was aware of the excellent quality of the product.  Not only are TurnTex chambers excellent but the stabilizing and casting resins, dyes and accessories are also top quality. Customer service is second to none. Thanks Curtis and TurnTex.

Excellent product

I purchased the oven tamer, what a nice piece of equipment!  very well made, easy to use and ACCURATE!  My stabilized wood is much better now that the oven temperature isn't swinging 50+ degrees!  Highly recommend this product, shipping was fast and unit well packed.

Very Happy.

These chambers are very well made. Everything with it is top notch, no shortcuts. I was amazed at the quality, I have not seen this type of craftsmanship in a long time. After a lot of research prior to buying, I am happy I chose this one, well worth the wait time.

Above & Beyond

TurnTex Woodworks went above and beyond on my order. After doing considerable research and asking questions I ordered a stabilizing chamber and and Cactus Juice. When my order arrived it was exactly what I ordered PLUS a size larger, note explained a production error, they could have just as easily pushed my order back into production and sent the larger unit to someone else. Top notch company with top notch service. I look forward to doing business with them again in the near future.

Great products

Turn Tex Woodworks is a great company to do business with.  I have several of their products now and am totally pleased with their quality.   Curtis is very knowledgeable about the stabilizing and casting process and is very willing to share and help in anyway that he can.

Top-Notch Customer Service

Having used Cactus Juice in the past, I knew Turntex offered Alumilite in the smaller 8 pound size.  I don't pour as much as I used to, so this size was perfect.  Super fast shipping, and now I'm going to get my Alumilite from Curtis from this day forward.

vacuum pump saver

WOW!!! When I initialled placed my order this item was out of stock. But...there was a message that said that if I wanted to be notified when they were ready for shipment TurnTex would notify me. Needless to say others had promised the same thing. I got an email from TurnTex letting me know they were ready for shipment and all I had to do was put in my payment info. As promised I received my saver and it's nicely built and look very sturdy. I'll be using it very soon.

Long history as customer of turntex

Out here in West Texas, when every customer transaction is excellent,  the highest compliment is giving the seller a great big "atta boy"  Turntex gets a great big "atta boy" on all my dealings with them.  For those who that aren't familiar with that expression, just call it A+.

I've been a pen turner for a couple of years and I just got started this month with stabilizing and alumilite casting blanks. I'm finding all kinds of wood,cactus, and everything else to stabilize and cast. I love these products I purchased and will be purchasing more in the future. Thank you and your videos for all the help.

Oven Tamer

To say I am thrilled with this item would be an understatement.  I tried a different product I got off Amazon and was not happy with it.  I casually mentioned the Oven Tamer to Curtis while talking about a Cactus Juice order and he built me one within a day.  Setting up it was super simple, hook it up to the oven, plug it it and push one button and wait.  A half hour later it was ready.  It is amazingly accurate.  The oven by itself stayed in a 50 degree range, with the Amazon product it stayed in a 30 degree range.  With the Oven Tamer set at 200 degrees it dropped as low as 199.1 degrees and soared to 200.9 degrees.  I admit one time it did get to 201.3 degrees but only once.

I go through a minimum of 4 gals of Alumilte Slow a month. I love this product. I buy the 80#. Curtis and his team ship out immediately and it always arrives in great condition and within a couple days. Curtis can answer any question you could possibly have and is always very courteous. In my opinion Alumilite Slow if the best product fo resin casting. Processes quickly, turns great. The price point when you buy the 80# is fantastic. Thanks a lot! Sue Meyers

Excellent service and a great product!

The intro is really all I need to say, service was great, and my order was processed very quickly, I was immediately impressed, as I was very excited to get my hands on some cactus juice and give it a try. Since receiving it I have had a great time learning to stabilize different things, and I will have my first knives made with self-stabilized wood and hybrid wood scales finished in the next few days!

Late but good quality

Bought a chamber and some resin. Was late coming out but once it got to me, I was pleased. Only tried it twice so far but as best I can tell it’s a sturdy, good quality system with great instructions.

Fast deliver minor issue

The product was packed well and delivered in an incredibly fast time from my perspective. Glad the dyes were bagged in a plastic bag though. The lids were loose on several bottles packed as a group in one bag. As a result, the dyes leaked out a little( not huge loss) but enough to coat inside of bag and require a clean up. Might benefit from adding a foil seal to bottles to avoid leaks. Glad they wash off in water. Was able to begin learning and experimenting over the weekend. Plan on ordering more as time goes by. Thank you. 

My Comments:  This was for Alumilite Dyes which we are just a retailer of and do not package ourselves.  Unfortunately we have no control over how they are bottled.

Alumilite Order

I have ordered Alumilite from several places. You without a doubt are the fastest to respond. Also packed better than the others. I have had a couple of issues of leakage with other companies. Not you. You have a life time customer in me. Thanks again.

My New Hobby

About 2 weeks ago, I ordered Alumilite Clear Slow from TurnTex.  The materials arrived quickly and well-packed.  The invoice had a handwritten Thank You, which is a lovely touch in this day & age.

I am ordering more Aluminite now from TurnTex... they are my supplier for my new hobby. 

Thank you!

Great Service

With many commercial options for suppliers of Cactus Juice and Alumilite, TurnTex Woodworks offered an easy to use website and good prices on buying in quantity.  There website also offered helpful tips.  I appreciated the fast and customer focused service.  It has certain made me want to continue to buy from them again.

As always super fast shipping got here in plenty of time for me to do the IAP Loveland Chapter Demo.  Had 24 in the Demo and everyone loved the product. Thanks Curtis and the new colors are awesome. Hope the others come in stock shortly.  Glad you sent the business cards and flyer, Bob Franklin help me distribute it to all participants.
