Gene synthesis using oligos

Hi Folks,

I need to synthesise the first 130bp of a gene. Rather than try to using
two v.large oligos I thought of using four smaller overlapping ones and
then PCR'ing using the two outers or using klenow to fill in the gaps.
My question is how many bases should I overlap on each oligo? Is a
homolgy of ten bases at each end of an oligo enough?



      start --------------->         --------------->
                         <--------------          <-------------- end


Many thanks

Duncan
