Can this be used with 12ax7 pre amp tubes. what is the outside diameter and height of the adapter. My pre amp tubes are set in the chassis so deep I can barely get a hold of them I hoping this will raise them enough to make changes easier.

Yes, you can use this with a 12AX7. Outside diameter is 0.87" and height is 0.76".
As pictured the socket saver cannot be fixed-mounted in a tube tester because the center screw is not long enough. It would need a longer screw and an additional nut as with most socket savers. This is more of a "socket adapter". Is it possible to obtain a 9-pin "socket saver" with the long mounting screw? Thanks,

Tube testers will not have a threaded socket for a longer screw to mate to. The screw used in these socket savers are simply there to attach the two separate components that make up this socket saver.
