A duplex document feeder for feeding sheets in a reproduction machine is disclosed. Referring to the figure, the duplex feeder 5 includes a turn baffle 1 having an outer baMle 2, an inner baffle 3 and an inverter roll 4. The inverter roll 4 freely rotates when paper 7 rubs on its surface. This minimizes skewing of heavy weight and stiff documents (e.g. 241bs or greater) moving through the tight radius of the turn baffle.
