Vacuum chamber

Got my chamber in and my cactus juice. Was very pleased with the communication during the lead time. It came ready to use, after hooking up a single hose and worked like a charm! I definitely can't wait to get more experienced so I can start doing some colors. 10/10 would recommend

Great product!

If your looking at getting into stabilizing your own wood look no further than Turn Tex woodworks!

The only thing better than the product is the product support you get with this company.

In short, they are the very best!

Outstanding Service!

Curtis helped me in almost every step of the way. From ordering the product right up to the delivery to my door! On New Year's Eve no less! He even provided a location of the product when it was delayed by a weather event. His 'one on one' customer satisfaction promise and demeanor are second to none.  His product performed perfectly as advertised. I will order again and again from Mr. Seebeck for his customer service alone, not to mention a great product.  The Cactus Juice came packaged well, and the instructions for mixing and preparing the product for use were clear and concise. Well done Mr. Seebeck....well done!

Great Documentation

Aside from the product being great and easy to use. The best part about ordering from TurnTex are the fantastic instructions and documentation.  They are clear and extremely helpful for people new to stabilizing products.

Keep up the good work!

Stabilization Chamber

I purchased the 16” wood stabilization chamber. As Curtis states, he puts the time in the details. The chamber looks and works great right out of the box.. Packaging was also top notch, as nothing was damaged during shipping.

I’ve had the chamber 3 days, and have run 3 batches of wood, one per day.. 

I was also impressed with the Cactus Juice.. Did my first double dye and they came out great..

Amazing products

I purchased an oven tamer and stabilizing chamber and love both of them. The tamer keeps my oven at the exact temp I set it at and the chamber is working great. The thing I like the best however is the instructions that come with the products and all the support you get from the Q&As that are available and Curtis’s live support if you need.

My #1 'Go To' for all Resin Related products!

I only started working with resin crafts about 6 months ago and quickly learned that TurnTex provides the very best products available!  From their 'Cactus Juice' stabilizing resin to their slow-set 2-part casting resins.  I've already placed several orders with Curtis and his gang and will continue to do so in the months ahead.

Great service

The Turn-Tex crew was on the ball--as normal!!  Fresh Cactus Juice shipped within a few hours of the order.  Just be sure to allow time for ground transit--it won't move like priority mail.

Filling in the cracks

I purchased your casting resin to fill in some checking on some spalded maple rounds in a bar that I am making. I also ordered several color additives and metallics. I am very happy with the results of my order, I received the order in a timely manner and the product filled the checking cracks in the bar with no nasty smell.  I cannot comment on the finishing properties of the material as I am still taking care of several small cracks in the bar. My only suggestion would be that at least in my case, I did not want to get out a whole bunch of equipment to measure small amounts to mix, so I ended up guesstimating the 1 to 1 by weight ratio.  Even though it seems to be working out well so far, if there were volumetric guidelines or simply marks on the containers for parts A and B it would be a help, but again so far so good, I love the product so far and will order more when I need it.

Cactus Juice

Ordered Cactus Juice after attempting to purchase similar product from China. As I live in Hong Kong delivery fees from China are very low, so paying for shipping from USA is always a bit of a pain. BUt, delivery was prompt and I am ready to start stabilizing. I brought a watermelon sized chunk of cypress burl back from Taiwan years ago. Have made many fine things...and now it's time to work with the precious offcuts. Will keep you updated, once I start stabilizing.Great service and communication from Turntex....Thanks

Oventamer II rocks

Just received the Oventamer II and put it through it's paces.  Worked great takes a lot of the stress out of the curing process. Also used it to dry wood maintained temp within a couple of degrees for 24 hours. This thing rocks!  Thanks Curtis

Top notch shipping

I haven't had time to use the resin and powers I ordered but time from placing the order and it being shipped was less than 24 hrs. When it showed up everything was packed with care and very secure.

Cactus Juice And epoxy

the catcus juice works very good however, i recently purchased a two gal kit of epoxy from you and the part B has hardened up to where it cannot be used. I did what you said on your website with the hot water but, it still never gets liquid enough to use. It’s just a thick gel and I have a half of gal left. Do you sell just the part B so I dont have to purchase both parts again?

Excellent products

I found out about Alumilie and Cactus Juice through Zac Higgins YouTube channel.  Products are just as good as I’ve heard they were, and I’ve had nothing but good experiences so far.  Great company, great products.  Already on my second order of Alumilite, we are having so much fun working with it.

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.

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,
