Abstract

This is an improvement in a recirculating document feeder with a repositionable rear stack guide and restacking guide positioner, as in Xerox U. S. Patent No. 4,469,319. Two flexible plastic baffles 1Oa and lob provide sheet guidance for the document restack (tray reentry) path. They unroll automatically from arcuate storage guides 16a and 16b to extend the baffles 10a and IOb when the rear stack guide 13 of the RDH tray 14 is moved forward with its integral rollers 15a and 15b for smaller documents, and vice-versa for larger documents. This provides continuous baffles to prevent jams for the entire range of B5 to 5 4 Japanese size document sheets. The entire unit, including the Integral sheet drives 15a, 15b, is a removable kit.
