Nothing wrong with splicing even for any part of the secondary.
I usually file the wire to a taper on one side, sort of an inclined
plane appearance on both wire ends, then I overlap them. the
inclined planes match up to give a wire that is no thicker than
normal, but have a large soldered contact area. I do not remove
any insulation from the enameled wire. This way the solder only
sticks to the filed (inclined) areas.
