help needed re equipment

Hi!
I have started to make small brass rimmed glass "armoire" to display
collection of perfume miniatures.
I have a hard time with the soldering of the thin brass "c" channel that I
use to make a frame around the pieces of glass and more problems when I
try to solder the pieces together to form the little ( 12"w x 14"h x 3" d).
I use know  the Weller Model 8200 pistol grip gun I had 100/140
whatts). I have a hard time to make a half decent job. It is heavy, bulky and
hard to go in inside corners.
I would like to have the comments of persons having experiende before
getting an other welding instrument in order to invest intelligently.
