triton pro question

Thanks for the replies to my other posts , This time I wanted to ask should you have to home the machine in between setting the x and y offsetts on a triton pro miller ?

Once the machine has been homed you should not have to home it again unless you have stalled the machine causing a loss of position.
You do not need to home out between setting offsets!

No - you only need to home the machine once.
Sometimes with stepper machines, you may stall an axis (eg, cutting a hard material too quickly) - in this case you need to re-home the axes, as the controls' step count has got out of sync with the actual position of the axis.
If you have a triton pro, then it uses closed loop servo drives, and will not loose position this way.
