7.    Thermometer: the LCD screen/OLED is quite an expensive part, and improper heat will cause irreversible damage to the screen itself, so a thermometer with laser target could save you some potential damage (and it’s quite cheap, why not have one).
8.    A pair of heat resistant glove: Protect yourself from burn when grabbing the heated up screen or any inner components.

9.    Microfiber cleaning cloth & isopropyl alcohol: these could be used to clear the fingerprints and body oil on the screen and the adhesive residue.

If you are skillful enough, and want to be more competitive in the local competition, these repairs wound be of help.

Equipment for Glass screen repairs:
1.    Ultrasonic Cleaner: this machine is used to wash any possible corrosions on the motherboard (IC chips & connectors).

3.    LCD Separation Machine: a machine which can be used to fasten the broken screen on it and heat the adhesive in between the glass and the digitizer.
4.    Molybdenum string: a very thin but a strong string which can be used to separate the broken glass.
5.    LOCA/OCA: these are two different adhesives used to bond the new glass and the digitizer. The main difference between this two adhesives is, OCA is much more strong and expensive, while LOCA is cheaper and less sticky. If you use OCA for refurbishing screens, sometimes you’ll find it’s difficult to reuse the display, when someone break the screen for the second time.
6.    UV light: this is for drying the LOCA/OCA.

7.    Vacuum Bubble Remove Autoclave: this machine is used to remove the left air bubbles in between the glass and the digitizer (recommended for professional refurbishes).

Some chips may get electric short circuit and need to be replaced, or the corrosions on chips of motherboard cannot be cleaned and need to be changed. Sometimes it is the charging port sealed to the mainboard need to be replaced. These are the most complicated situations you may face during the repair.
