I've got the Millennium Bug. Can I run more than one off the same power supply?

I've got the Millennium Bug

I realized after organizing the phone collection,  Ive got 4 Millennium Payphones.  I've provisioned one with Howard Harte's Millennium Manager running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W.  Works great. 

The other 3 need some love. 
The Embarq one is complete, Just need to provision it.    coin vault lock needs drilled
The Ben Lomand RTC is Complete and Powers up.  Just need to provision it. 
The Verizon is a basketcase and is essentially parts for the others. 

They are fun to hack on,  still trying to make sense of all the tables and whatnot.  Winhex has been a blessing. 

Question though,   Ive got a 24v 6 amp power supply,  Can i run more than one off the same power supply?

Thanks again. 


Generally speaking, yes.
But use only one at a time, or maybe dont have to???
not sure bout payphones
