The spacing is around 0.015" (~0.38mm). They are perfectly OK for tube receivers, but I would rate them at around 250V. For a linear HF amp, the capacitor is useful as a pi output capacitor, but you would need a higher voltage rating for a plate cap. For antenna tuners (tee or L), I would be reluctant to rate them in excess of 25-30W, because of the higher voltages encountered when matching reactive loads.

Yes, there appears to be three threaded mounting holes on the bottom of this capacitor.

Yes. single section, two or three together, or use all three separate in a pi configuration or pi/tuning config.

I used this product as the tuning capacitor on a magnetic loop antenna project. It worked well and was easy to install.

It arrived in a timely manner and was packaged securely. I'll be using AES more often for hard to find equipment.

This capacitor appears well made and turns freely. All three sections closely matched in capacitance. It was well packed. I am very happy with it.
