Cactus Juice Dyes

Brilliant product that complements an outstanding must have item for pen turning or what ever your fancy.  Took a while to land in Oz but that was through no fault of Turntex.  I will be back soon.

I had read about Cactus Juicue however I was a little skeptical, as a friend of mine said he had tried to die some wood and it didn’t work. Well  i Found that if you follow Curtis’s instructions the stuff works great.  i  dyed hard maple blue and it is great the color goes completely through it, I have turned it on the lathe sanded it and polished it just looks great.


Curtis thanks for a great product.

First time user

This is the first time that I have used Cactus Juice and so far so good. I stabilized some Amboyna knife scales and they came out really well. The customer service and information available on the website are top notch.

Great Customer Service

Thank you Curtis for the quick processing and delivery of my Cactus Juice, this stuff works wonders even with rotten wood turning it into a usable knife handle.

Best regards,

Going well!

I purchased the 6" stabilization chamber and Cactus Juice from Curtis and am very satisfied with it so far.  I'm new to stabilization but went through all the resources (videos, answers to FAQ, etc) while waiting for my order.  The information Curtis puts out is a great resource and should be taken advantage of by anyone new to this work.  The chamber itself and Cactus Juice are working well and just as described.  If you are interested in stabilization, I think TurnTex is the place to do that.

Cactus juice

I have tried many other products being a custom knife maker and a custom call maker and this stuff is by far the best on the market, don't waste your time or money trying out other products that may be a bit cheaper, You get what you pay for and good luck getting any support from the others, This is the only and best stabilizing product on the market by far,

Cactus Juice

We have been using the Cactus juice for 3 years now, it is a awesome product. The service offered by Turn tex is second to none. Cactus juice sent out same or next day. arrives pretty fast considering it has to go to NZ. We will continue buy cactus juice from Turn tex and can unreservedly recommend them.

Awesome service thank u

I live on one of the smaller Hawaiian islands and getting stuff delivered here is a major pain. I have tried numerous suppliers previously and got turned down when when I was ready to pay almost as much for delivery as the one gallon stabilizing resin cost. tried even with a freight forwarder and even that turn out to be pain. And then I found you and in 3 days I had my order. I can't say how exited I was when I opened the package and it was all there. I have two fulltime jobs and it's hard to find a lot of time for my new hobby making pens or things from wood but getting older only means I'll be slowing down on what I have to do and doing more of what I want to do. Anyway just wanted to say that I was very happy and pleasently surprised when I got the resin after being turned down from everyone for almost 6 months. Thank you verry much. U have a customer for life.

First time user

I was really impressed with Cactus Juice!  It preformed as documented.  Cleanup with soap & water really worked which surprised me.  I was stabilizing jumping choa pieces to make ornaments.  I was warned that the solution would foam up so I started the vacuum slowly.  Although I have an inline filter, the only issue I have it how to not get Cactus Juice into my vacuum pump oil.  I am wondering if I can find a better filte.


Results were great!.

Placed a few orders from Hawaii and could not be happier with the products. But most importantly the shipping speed and service. This company is the most pleasant and efficient company I have had the pleasure to do busness with, and will continue to do so.

Oven Tamer

Just got my oven tamer in from Turntex Woodworks and I am excited to go to work now.  I had gotten to where I would not dry blanks in my oven until I got better control of the heat source.  I also just got the Atomic Fireball to set close by also.  Thanks guys for all your help.

Cactus Juice and Alumilite

WE have been experimenting with both Cactus Juice and Alumilite.  The products and service have been excellent.  The orders ship and arrive promptly and at very reasonable shipping costs.  Since we area based in Hawaii that has not always been the case with other suppliers.

Supper service

Once again I was impressed by the quick service from Mr. Curtis Seebeck of Turn Tex Woodworks,

the 8" Vacuum tube I ordered is well made and comes complete with connectors ,gauge and hose

ready to go.

I relied on Mr. Curtis expertise on the the matter of Stabilizing to get me started and continued to support.

Thank you Mr. Seebeck

Keep the good work

Woundering why when you do have them in stock, you will only sell only one, the shipping hurts someone that's retired. You must not get many universal lids in at a time. people don't like waiting.

Oven Tamer II

I got tired of chasing temps in my toaster oven and having it jump 10 plus degrees so I gave the Oven Tamer II a shot. I’ve used it 5 times and it worked as stated and kept temps within +/- 1 degree. 


Thanks Turn Tex for a great product!

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.
