This interview with a man named John Beiler, on what looks like a break from welding, is one of many featuring Pennsylvania German speakers on the Penn Deitsch website.

Even if you don’t know any Pennsylvania German you can probably follow along for the first 30 seconds or so, and at numerous parts throughout.

At about 4:20 in the video John demonstrates his craft. At 5:30 his sons Steven and Jay Amos join the interview. A female speaker (mom, I believe) chimes in at around 10 minutes in. At 15:40 the boys show off their animals and at 17:45, the scooter.
