You can parallel them. Use a small resistor (like 0.33 ohm) in series with
each of them so they deliver half the current each.
I have a design here somewhere that use 10x 7824 in parallel...

----- Original Message -----
I was wondering is is possible to parallel 2 of them together to double the
current out or do I have to usetransistors to increase current?
Thanks
Jim
