'Inventor's mind always on the move'
By Geoffrey Gevalt, Free Press Staff Writer
    Talk to Damian Renzello for a few minutes and you understand he's a man with ideas. Lots of ideas. They kind of bubble out of this cheery 29- year-old man.
    "I'm an inventor," he says, using his hands as punctuation. "ideas just come to me. But unlike some people, I do something about them. I like designing them and developing prototypes and seeing what I can do with them."

    Inventor Damian Renzello of East Montpelier demonstrates his latest innovation, the Ice Mower, on a small skating rink Monday at Battery Park in Burlington. The Ice Mower is a modified lawn mower that is used to smooth the surface of backyard rinks and frozen lakes and ponds, making the ice smoother and safer.

A 7.5-horsepower motor pumps the chemical glycol, similar to antifreeze, through the tubes from a 50-ton compressor and chilling barrel. Renzello invented this portable kit for building ice rinks.

From Bambini to Backyard Zamboni

Damian Renzello demonstrates his Bambini Revolution ice resurfacer at his home in East Montpelier. The machine is designed to keep outdoor ice surfaces at top level. He has mounted a snow blower on the front of a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle, added an ice scraper blade underneath and mounted a water tank connected to pipes and hoses that lay down a film of water to create a glass-like finish to outdoor ice.
