I had a Magnavox console-pull two channel tube amp ( 12ax7, pair of 6AQ5's and an EZ80 rectifier). Single-end and 3 watts output per channel. A bare-chassis which I just placed on top of another component. Fun to play with! Not as good sounding as my SET 2A3 Sanei 560A (all Tango iron)! All those Magnavox console amps had cheap and puny transformers - good iron is hefty and costs a lot!
Sure, why not? Just be careful screws don't get in the way of electronics.
Listen to the same track before and after and see if you spot a difference in sound quality. I had one of these units once and it served me well in rented digs. If the tubes are old, especially the EL84s, you could try a fresh set of tubes from here: https://www.tubedepot.com/t/tubes/power-tubes/el84-6bq5-7189
