As usual....

I place and order, I get confirmations for "order received" within minutes if not instantly,  "order shipped" not very long after, and a couple days later for  "order delivered"

As usual... Right...and right on time. Everytime!

Thanks Curtis and crew.

First time ordering from turntex and all I can say is Curtis is the best.  Ordered enough stuff to start out and it arrived quickly.  Had some questions and messaged Curtis and he answered promptly.  Gotta say best customer service I have ever had.  Thank you Curtis and Turntex.  Will definitely be ordering again soon.

Great product and delivery time

The delivery time was great.  I got all the dyes and the stabilizer that I needed for my project in a couple of days.

Top quality products and excellent service

My order shipped out the same day, and they even read and responded to the comments I made on the order. Always good results with Cactus Juice and the dyes they sell for it. I wouldn't be able to do anything at all without the extensive help/faq section on the TurnTex website! And when all else fails, there is a fast reply either by online chat or email. A great company to do business with!

Turquoise Stabilization

After Stabilizing 100 Pounds of Turquoise or so, I can say with great pleasure that this stuff WORKS.   Not often that I will endorse a Product, but this is an exception, I would recommend this to anyone looking to use it with Stabilizing Turquoise or any other Lapidary Application.

Cactus Juice

I used Cactus Juice last year (2017) and was very satisfied with the results.  It was easy to use and it stabilized my antler horns that I used for knife handles, and the hardness was very satisfactory.  I had no fears about the finished product and knew that my finished knife handles were very much superior to what I had previously produced.


I ordered Cactus Juice again this year and expect to receive the same high quality results.

Quick Response

I was amazed, I had barely placed the order and the acknowledgement and tracking numbers were in my email inbox.  IO received the juice in a timely manner, but have not had time to use it yet.  I expect it to work fine!  Thanks for the speedy service!

Customer Service

In May I order some merchandise. My credit card was posted 25 May 18. I am still waiting on merchandise ordered and waiting on some type of communication as to when I can expect my merchandise.It is hard to contact Curtis, hard to get a return phone call when I can expect my merchandise. I hope we can do buisness in the future but will have to consider these factors in the near future. I understand being a small business. I too own a small business but cant get my products out waiting several months to recieve equipment. I get behind and loose money everyday without the equipment I ordered.

Torn Tex is tops in service, (shipping, product availability, information, reliability, the whole kit and the kaboodle too!  I've been dealing with Curtis for over 3 years and have never had ANY problems of any kind. Also, I have called him a "few"xx's times and he always ha san answer or tries to get one asap. More companies need to take notice of how to run a business the PROPER way. Keep up the fantastic work Turn Tex!!

Cactus juice

I'm a woodworker and been doing what I'm doing for 10 years. Just got into stabilizing wood and y'all helped me out big time. The cuctus juice works amazingly and your reapose time was wonderful. Always like doing bussiness with other small businesses. Will be ordering more soon!

Curtis, once again helped me out with a plethora of information, as well as help with my order. He sure does run a great company, with a great product, and is always there to answer any questions I had. No matter what time it was or even on vacation, he always helped. That's what sets him apart and makes turntex amazing. He's also always an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much Curtis!

very pleased

Just wanted to say how pleased I was recently when I dealt with the folks at Turntex. I had a self-induced problem with the vacuum/stabilizing system and Turntex straightened it out. For all you wood stabilizers out there, do not attempt to stabilize wood on very hot days!

Intl Customer

Shipping took 6 days to New Zealand and was well packaged.

Cost of shipping almost doubles the price of the product.

Would be good to find a cheaper shipping option and it wouldn't matter if it took longer to arrive. 

My comment:  I would love to find a cheaper shipping option myself.  If you know of any, please let me know.  I offer the cheapest shipping options that I know of after doing lots of research.  Even slower methods are not much cheaper and do not provide any tracking information which is a must.

Outstanding customer service

I had ordered a gallon of cactus juice off amazon (they were not a registered supplier) and did not receive the activator with the order. I reached out to Curtis and got his advice on how to resolve the situation. Curtis was extremely helpful and cared about my situation. Apon ordering through the TurnTex website, I recived my cactus juice, activator, and an additional bottle of activator for my unusable amazon order. Expecting to pay, I was greatly impressed to see the packing slip with the additional bottle, next to it was a note "No charge my friend". You can't match the kind of customer service you will recieve from Curtis and his team.

My source for product....

Buying from Curtis has become my only source for stabilization and resin casting products.  Fast shipping for in stock product! 

Don't mind the wait for other hand crafted components due to the quality.

Excellent customer service....

Thanks, Curtis!

Color, color, color ...

My recent order for juice dye was delivered promptly as hoped. With about 500 pounds of spalted maple burl to work with, I'm looking forward to turning a variety of unusual items. Violet has already provided me an evening shadows over a mountain range. Looking forward to storms created with teal green. Thanks to Turnex for providing the varieties to work with.

cactus juice

Turntex is the best when it comes to stabilizing. The products are great and Curtis is always willing to help figuring out the process and issues that come up. I have been suing Cactus juice for about 3 years now and love it.

Hello from upstate NY, finger lakes region

I've ordered the half gallon twice and the shipping is amazing, 2 days, both times.

The product works well, just wished it wasn't so pricey, but you usually get what you pay for and I've tried lesser costing products and had lesser results.

I recommend TurnTex always

Excellent quality

I received my vacuum chamber exactly as scheduled. It is excellent workmanship and quality hardware. I could not be happier!

I was a bit worried about the long lead time and automated order system but everything went without a hitch. Lead times were communicated well and estimated perfectly. 

I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this company and product for anyone serious about quality and American craftsmanship.

TurnTex is the best!

Fresh material is the name of the game when buying 80 pounds at a time and Chuck and the gang come through everytime.  Hands down fastest and best customer service!  I could buy elsewhere for slightly less but you never know how old the resin is coming from Amazon and ebay type places.  If it looks to good to be true, it is.  Buy from turntex and you will not be sorry, about to have him build me a new stabilizing chamber, 8" big boy!
