Hi Bryan,

We are not talking about performance loss here. That is not an issue.
Potential voltage break through spots however are! If you look at the site
of Richie Burnett ( http://www.staff.ncl.ac.uk/r.e.burnett/sale.html ), you
will see a secondary coil wounded with four different wires. You could ask
Richie how he did it. It's essential that the contact you make is as smooth
as possible without sharp corners.
