Yes, you are a little curious.
No reason a swing set wouldn't work. Unless you cut the legs down the rail will be pretty high though. You'll need a bit more length to get the hangle you want.
Lots of stands of the "otherwise discarded" variety have been used. Not sure what you have that's "light weight" though. Got a picture?
