I can feel the drive to create a perfect product, but primary loss is only a few percent of the total. In my case (low-tech hand winding), I was unwilling to task myself with the extra complication. I haven't regretted it.
Remember, "perfect" is the enemy of "good enough".

secondary? Especially when the primary is only 60T, and can be
wound any way you want.
