I am working on restoring an old Delta/Milwaukee 14” band saw. I was taking apart the trunnions today and found this one looks like it has been ground down from use. I am wondering if this is how it is supposed to look or if this is something that’s going to give me issues getting the table set up flat/straight/true/plum/etc.

Thanks (as always) for any info you can provide!

From that picture, it looks fine. The support bracket (what you show in the picture) is cast iron, while the trunnions are a much softer die cast material – so the trunnions would wear down before the support bracket ever would. The supports are not the same thickness though, so maybe that is what made you think it was worn down:

Cheers,
Brad
