Never mind the boll*cks about shipbuilding, we invented this term for you. I remember talking to Mackems in the early eighties who'd never heard of the expression.
There's no mystery here, in plain English you say "make and take", in Geordie it's "mek and tek" and in Sunderland you say "mak and tak".
You'd have to be a thick Mackem not to understand that.
