I believe that your stove is the same as a Surdiac which wer quite popular in the 80s. If you can't find any Efel information try Surdiac. I've never seen on in person but assume it's sheet metal surrounding cast iron. I don't know how they are assembled though. Explain what you mean by "Losing cement"? If you mean pieces dropping off of joints that doesn't necessarily mean the joint is leaking there. I just restored my Glenwood 116 and the first time I burned it to cure the finish, I had several pieces fall off too but they were all just my over zealous application of furnace cement when I put it back together. The joints themselves are sealed well. In other words it was bits of "squeeze" that I didn't wipe away that fell off. But, if yours is leaking where the cement came off then yes you need to reseal it. Does the tin unscrew or it it riveted/spot welded?
This is a surdiac pix attached.
