FWIW - Sears makes a Sliding compound that is much less expensive than the big name brands. It will do the job for a DIYer*.
(* Contractors beat the crap out of their tools and usually spend more for the other big brands since they get dropped out of trucks, off ladders, off staging, etc..etc...,and usually keep going and going. Example: We lost a 12' sliding miter from 14' up - off pump jack staging - while doing a cedar shake siding job... minor damage; it's in the shop getting repaired)
