I made a hanging spindle or post to put my weights on. Made from a 1 inch diameter piece of aluminum 6 1/2 inches long. I drilled and tapped a 1/4 inch hole on one end and attached a 2inch washer with a screw. The weight rests on this washer. On the other end a drilled and tapped a 1/8 inch hole to receive a 1/8 inch eye bolt. The hanger attaches to the eye bolt. I can stack regular weights very easily on this spindle. It would probably hold 100 pounds. I could never imagine hanging that much weight so I should be fine with this.
