An instrument has been developed to avoid the rotation of large electron sources and detectors in quantum single particle scattering experiments. The rotation of an electron beam has been achieved by combining three small cylindrical electrostatic electron energy analyzers in series such that the first analyzer is fixed and the other two rotate together around the exit axis of the first; it is a development from an S-shaped deflector used by Hegemann et al. [J. Phys. B 26, 4607 (1993)]. Novel design and construction, using copper, aluminum, and stainless steel parts mounted on polyvinyl printed circuit board, enabled an efficient, small-sized high vacuum compatible instrument. The characteristics and versatility of the instrument have been shown by measurements of angular and spin asymmetries of electron scattering phenomena
