Answer: 
No and the guide is no longer available from Skil. Furthermore, they use an odd sized diameter for the posts that connect the guide to the router (they are very small/narrow). I intended to use this router as my hand held model as it can't be adjusted from above while in a table. Between the lack of an edge guide and the poor plunge action, this router just collects dust.

Thank you for your question. The 1830 router combo set does not come with an edge guide, however an edge guide is available as a separate accessory, the part number is 91800.

10 Amp 2-1/4 HP Corded Combo Base Router Set is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of power but seems Skil no longer supports i I bought this router because it had both plunge and fixed bases. 2.5hp is plenty of power to do most all projects. Unfortunately it seems Skil no longer supports the accessories for this router. Specifically the edge guide 98100. Do your research and pick a router that is still supported.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent router or the money This router has a lot of nice features on it but, not will constructed. First time I used the router the depth rod knob threads stripped out on the cast iron housing. fixed it with tap and die set. .Slow start and variable speed dial is great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sad... Cam lock on depth setting will not stay / hold at depth set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Suprised! I just submitted a review, not a good one. I had bad luck, must have got a dud! A couple days after writing the review the product manager contacted me. He simply asked for my address and said "I'll just send you a new one"! Sight unseen he sends me a new router, all i had to do was send the old one to him. He wants to look at it and see what happened to it. That kind of customer service is unheard of, he could have just looked the other way, he went out of his way to make sure i got my money's worth. I will use this router for a week or two and then write another review. So far i'll rate the service as "Excellent"!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from works... kinda The router motor seems very powerful and the soft start is great. The tool will work but proved to be difficult to set up, for example, if you set a round over bit (or any other edge treatment bit) exactly even with the plate while holding the router upside down (with either the plunge or fixed base) when you preform the task your bit will not be in the same alignment it was originally. This happens because the tolerances for the production of the tool are not very tight ....allowing for slop.... but lowering price. As I said you can get it right but it is tricky. Also, the fixed base works great in a table... mainly because it stays upside down so your settings do not change like they do when its hand held.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dado Work I bought this so I could have 2 routers setup to do Thru Dados. The plunger adapter will not clamp tight onto motor and the standard adapter will never center on adapter ring when you raise it up to do dados. The plunge adapter will creep up and centering will be off. No matter how tight I tighten the clamp it moves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operate. Plenty of power. Reliable I purchased this router, along with the Skil router table.  In the store, i was a bit worried about the stability of the table but once I set the table up while anchoring to a piece of plywood, it was very solid.  The routers controls are easy to understand and simple to use.  Where I used to dread having to route a piece with my old router, with this tool in hand, I achieve high quality routing with minimal effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money! I have the fixed base mounted under my workbench and it is easy to remove and put into the plunge base to take with me for jobs outside of the shop. Great router for the money, never let me down. I use it frequently and never had any problems. Screws to mount the base are hard to come by, they are a metric size and an uncommon one (in the US) on top of that. I ended up drilling out the base and using through bolts and washers... easy enough.
