[time-nuts] Parallel voltage regulators

A question for those that might know (or have an
opinion)...  I have in hand an LPRO rubidium reference
that requires 1.7 amps at 24 volts while the oven
warms, dropping to 500ma while it runs.

Can I parallel three or four 7824 TO220 style 1 amp
regulators with a quarter ohm half watt equalizing
resistor on the output of each one?

At maximum load there would be a quarter volt drop
across the resistors and the LPRO is stated to be ok
running on 16 to 32 volts.
