    Just ordered the last 1/2 gallon of cactus juice and 3 gallon tank with pump. Will let you know how it goes.

    wanted a gallon but all out, also judging the amount of gear for processing marijuana I may now be on a watch list :roflmao

    Supposed to pick up a couple of large burls this weekend and the fun will begin. Now to order Aluminite and assorted colors for making handles

    These guys seem to be distributors of Best Value Vacs. And they add a lot to the price...

    May be custom fees and lord knows what else plays role. I compared prices after conversion. Shipping you would have to pay anyways...

    But please, let us know about your experience with them.

    should have ordered the cold chamber but got cheap and will build one for a couple of dollars plus fittings. The hard part is waiting for it to show up, been 12 hours so far :roflmao

    Anyone know which is better between cactus juice and stick fast? Anything I have read doesn't seem to give a definitive answer.

    Once I try Cactus Juice I'll let you know. Stick Fast is good. My guess is they are so close that it's entirely in the hands of the marketing teams. ;-)

    received the box on Friday so it was three days earlier than they said in the email. tried it out last night on a bunch of pieces of maple burl I cut up, this picture is of a knife display stand I am making for the Sgian Dubh.

    Ordered in a few gallons of Cactus Juice as Curtis at Turntex is the original developer of the product unless you count a manufacturing (nasty stuff) from 3M

    His liquid dyes are now available and I have one of each color on the way, they are impressive if you have not seen them yet. Orange and pink even work well.

    As soon as they get here I will figure out the cost and post prices on my web site. With any luck there will be some savings of buying only a gallon from the States at a time

    I've bought cactus juice and vacuum components from Ledab. No issues at all. You can also buy on amazon from the same company...price about the same as ordering direct.

    They dropped their price twice now in the last couple of weeks for a gallon of cactus juice. from $200 down to $173.

    John, you can tell us... has this knifemaking just been a cover for your real business all along? Are you Breaking Bad? : )

    Funny you should mention that

    I got in the habit of buying in bulk once instead of many orders. Then people ask to buy something and off it went, like 1084 I have a 12” piece here

    Realized a couple weeks ago I should have a retail page to make things easier

    Of course this morning 5000 GS8-9 eyelets showed up along with 1500 line 24 snap sets in stainless, black and brass
    Not to mention around a 100 pounds of embossed leather that should be here today

    House is a little full right now
