For tips and tricks, you should watch the LCD screen refurbished video on YouTube. For glue and glass, you should ask your phone repair parts vendor, also you can buy them in iFixit. Only replace glass need some equipments like OCA Laminating Machine, Bubble Remove Machine and others.

You normally use Loca glue + a UV light to set the glue.

See this youtube tutorial.

All reputable refurbishers are doing OCA. LOCA is fine for one-offs (although not really cost effective). If the OP wants to do iPhone glass-only repair professionally, as the question suggests, they should invest in the proper tools and consumables, as Mandy recommends.


OCA and LOCA are the same glue. "L" simply means its the liquid form. The solid form is expensive due to the equipment as you said for a machine that can remove bubbles vs a simple UV light.
