    A single transformer is overheating so can I add another transformer with the same volt output so that would make it two with their out put joined.. The purpose is to drive a 6 amp motor at 27 volt DC from 115 volt AC or would it be better to join the DC after the rectification and then smooth both out at the same time with capacitors..Thank you for reading this.
    I hope I'm in the right forum for these questions because I am mostly into electromechanical and restoring antique devices as a hobby and I have gotten alot of great advice but I don't want to bug anyone with off topic stuff..Any input is greatly appreciated...colum

    Joining them after rectification is safer. I the transformers are not identical, they may not share the load equally
