    What do you mean work around?
    If you move any axis where you want it and tell it to zero the DRO, then that is G54. Usually. Assuming the machine is homed. You can set them up differently too, but for basic 3 axis machine operations, I think this is true.

    How would you prefer it to be implemented?

    I use it differently in different machines.
    On my router, G54 is my home position and the the tool touching the top of the work surface. I change it automatically for every tool with a probing routine.
    On my Haas, the G54, 55 and 56 points are set distances from Home. Always the same for our production parts.
    For other jobs, I generally use G57 and set the Z zero at the top of that material. X and Y generally stay the same. Fixed jaw in a vise.
    When I first started I didn't home my machines and set G54 manually each time by zeroing the DRO's.

    On current controls I have one spindle as T1 and the other spindle is T2. They are roughly 9in apart on gantry. I guess what I want it to do it when changing spindles by calling different tool numbers it offsets the current work offset by the distance between the spindles automatically. I guess I could set one at g54 and the other to g55 but it would make a much higher chance of programming one spindle in wrong offset in cam as that would have to be done manually.

    In most Cam packages that I have seen, a 0 or a 1 for offsets defaults to G54.
    a 2 is G55. a 3 is G 56 and so on. That particular method is what Fusion 360 uses and it uses a pretty main stream CAM package. I think it is HSM and is what you use with Solid Works as well.
    This is changed in the setup module. Not really sure how it would work with only two tools each time. You might be able to setup a template and use it for each part.
    This may also be something you would setup in the tool table for those two tools.

    Thinking about it now I think it needs to be part of a tool change routine as it also need to raise the z on first tool move over and lower back down z at same time

    I'm definitely no expert but happened to be perusing the manual and ran across this:

    "G54 - G59 - Select Work Coordinate System
    G54 through G59 select among the six regular work coordinate systems (WCS #1 through WCS #6). After issuing
    the code, subsequent absolute positions will be interpreted in the new coordinate system. Alternatively, the codes
    E1 through E6 to can be used instead of G54 through G59.
    Example:
    G54 G0 X0 Y0 Z0 ; select first WCS, move to origin
    G2 X1 I.5 Z-.5 ; mill something...
    G0 Z.1 ; Rapid to position Z0.1
    G55 X1 Y1 ; select second WCS, move to X1, Y1"


    Milton in Tennessee ya'll!
