    The w24 uses a really short cup and tungsten.. with not much stickout...

    how much stickout do you have??

    too long and it will make turbulence and draw in air..which will cause mayhem

        were you able to resolve that issue..??

        that torch in tight places is prone to turbulence..

        you might need to adjust your Argon flow....

        and believe it or not... sometimes less is better
