[TCML] Winding a secondary?

If I were to splice my secondary winding, and I may,
I would make the splice where it is in the lower part of the coil.
My coil has 777 turns of #17 wire on it and I would like to add
about 300 more turns. Fortunately, my coil's construction lends
itself for this: the coilform is long enough; it extends through the
base of the frame by a couple of feet. Since the top of the coil
doesn't need any modification, I plan to add the wire to the low
voltage end of the secondary and simply raise the coilform
