Great support!

Having had a great year of sales last year with custom cast products, I felt it was time to expand my lineup.

From ease of ordering, to the in depth explanations and short videos found in his help section.  I have great respect for Mr. Seebeck.  Im now on my second batch of stabilized materials.  Completely satisfied with my results so far, as well as the outstanding customer support setup.  I’m now a new loyal customer.

Well done sir!  Looking forward to my next order.

Great Service

I ordered the vacuum chamber kit and it arrived timely and good shape.  What I was most impressed was I had a question about something I forgot to put in my order, and my text was responded to almost immediately!  My question was answered and I was happy. I will definitely buy from TurnTex again.

Quality

i Just have to say that there is no substitute for Turn-Tex products. Absolute quality and attention to detail. Not to mention Curtis is one of the best business owners that really takes care of his customers. He is  always there to give advise or answer questions with just a phone call. Which is very rare nowadays. Customer for life.

first time customer

  I recently received my first batch of Cactus Juice.  This past weekend I ran a small batch of pens blanks through the new vacuum chamber with the Cactus Juice.  When the process was completed, I turned one of the blanks.  What a joy it was!  I'll be purchasing more when this is gone.

Cactus juice

There is no better place to buy stabilizing solution than Turn tex. Not only does it work, but where else can you get to call the owner of the company if you have an issue. Curtis stands behind his product and to me that means I will continue to buy from him.

Perfect order and shipping

Thanks for the perfect shipping. My order was well and on time delivered.

Cactus juice resin is just great and I gather unique result using dyes.

Great Stuff

The Cactus Juice works exactly as advertise.  I was surp at first that it didn’t leave a smoot, shiny plastic surfac, but realized that it worked to my advantage in that it will take finish and can be polished to a high sheen with tung oil.  My treated wood scales are selling my knives better than ever.  Thanks Turntex!

Great Service

I ordered for the first time from Turn Tex last week and I couldn't be more impressed with their product and their incredibly fast service. I'm not sure how they are able to turn around orders that fast but I will be using them for all my stablizing needs.

Unbelievable service!

I have been using Cactus Juice for 4 or 5 years and have had great success with it. I recently ordered some alumilite and casters choice. Ordered late in the afternoon and got email the next morning that order had shipped! I got my order in a couple of days and decided I was ready to be a caster. I mixed my first batch, put it in the pressure pot and twelve hours later it was still as runny as when I poured it. 

So I called Curtis and he picked right up and we went over what I did. He came up with a bad mixing in the wrong cup. Then he talked to me for 30 minutes giving tips on anything i asked.

Thanks Curtis, you are what customer service should be!

 

Thanks,

Great Product

i bought an oven tamer from Curtis and followed the instructions letting the tamer learn my oven. Real simple. My first cook was to dry grape vines and cactus blanks before stabilizatio. The oven maintained the set 220 degrees plus or minus no more than two degrees during the whole drying process.  After stabiliizing, I cured the blanks in my oven at 185 degrees and again the oven tamer performance was excellent. 

The second project was a medium punky bowl blank that I has previously started to turn but found it too spaulted. After stabilization the oven tamer worked perfectly again and now I have a very usable bow blank.  

I am so glad I bought this product as more of the cactus juice stays in the wood and not in the foil because of high heat.

Fast shipping and good quality parts

I ordered some parts for building my own chamber, and they were nicer than the other parts I bought on Amazon and at the hardware store. Also, the 3 day UPS shipping beat my Amazon Prime parts ordered within ten minutes of my TurnTex order! 

Thank you for a great experience, and all the educational tools on the website. I also bought the most recommended cheap pump, the Robinair 15310. I haven't pumped down yet my chamber yet, but comparing the specs and giving it a dry run it appears to be a decent pump.

first timer

Ordering and delivery were surprisingly easy and quick.  Used it for the first time with my vacuum chamber and then baked the pieces.  I plan to take these otherwise useless pieces and add colored casting resin, using a pressure pot prior to turning.

Small leak

Curtis, another delivery well executed. One small problem. The foil seal on one of the activator bottles wasn't attached very well and was dripping out. Fortunately it was contained in the plastic bag with the Juice. Didn't lose much. Just a drop or two. No biggie. Once again, thanks for a great product. Rob

Great service

Just received another order of Cactus Juice from Curtis. He is extremely knowledgeable and answered some of my recent questions about an issue I was having with a casting I had done. He answered them with no hesitation. He also gives great service with mailing the products immediately. I will definitely be ordering more in the future and know I can call him at anytime to answer any other questions I may have.

My order experience

I have always enjoyed ordering from Curtis at TurnTex Woodworks.  And it does not matter if it is a small order or a large order, they are all handled the same way.  VERY expediently and professionally.  My last order was no exception.  I had my product within 2 days.  Great service and great customer support.

Great Product!

I've been using Cactus Juice for about 4 years now. I didn't really know what I was looking for at the time but it was perfect for my needs. Curtis personally discussed the product with me over the phone, how it worked and the benefit over other stabilizing products. I believe it will meet or beat your expectations!

Great Products

I recently placed an order for Cactus Juice stabilizer. The order came quickly and the prices are great. My husband and I just recently added stabilizing and resin casting to our wood working hobby and I plan on ordering more supplies from Turn Tex. The prices for the Cactus Juice and Alumilite are very reasonable and the speed and ease of ordering is superb. Thank you, Turn Tex, for being a  supplier in a small package!
