The brackets are pretty cheap. I think it was five bucks for a three foot section - way more than I needed for my control panel.
For me, it was hard to find certain components that weren't
DIN-mounted. Like the mini circuit breakers. So since I was mounting a DIN rail for my mini circuit breakers, I decided to buy some other DIN-mounted components to save space and to make it look nicer.
Other components I didn't DIN-mount, like my contactors.
