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.

Answer: 
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First time use I gave this to my son for Christmas and he says, "4.5. Tell them the plunge base clamp loosens whole using router. Fixed base is very nice except for when locking and unlocking. Which it then moves the bit to were the dial for depth can't be set to spread cut depths real easy. But it is my first one. They may all be that way". He is having fun using it though. January 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One more Skil I have a Skil 1810 router that I bought a number of years ago that has served me well. I needed another router with a 1/2" collet. The 1830 router kit comes with a plunge base as well as a fixed base. It can also be used with the Skil 4510 router table that I already have. January 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by The combo idea is great, but in practice the router difficult to use The combo idea is great, but in practice the router difficult to use. With the fixed base, you cannot easily adjust the height of the router bits. You have to unlock the housing first, adjust the depth, then lock the housing. It is tedious. I wanted to get the Skil router table for it, but decided not to because it seems like I have to remove the whole router from the table every time I need to adjust the bit depth. The router's features are nice, but operationally it is disappointing. April 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice router! I have a skil router I have had for over 35 years. Bought in 1978! I used it a few times a year. I was ready to start spending more time woodworking[just retired] .I decided to give skil a chance, no reason not to. I also bought a circular saw same day as router. [1978] both still run strong. Used saw hundreds of hours. [ will buy another saw when need to ] Bought new router, built router table-cabinet- work station with it.Used both bases . Mounted fixed base on router table. I noticed play in the adjustment screw. I took micro-adjuster apart, put shim in, tightened adjustment screw slop. I am hoping the longevity is there! April 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool I have owned this router for a couple of years already and the only thing about it I can complain about is somebody stole the first one I bought. For the price the quality is outstanding. The slow start is a nice feature, because it makes it easier to start your cuts without worrying the router will twist or jump on the material. June 15, 2015
