I've seen some Penn Jigmaster spindles that look like this, is this normal or is it damage?

I think it is normal / manufactured that way. The other side has a less severe cut, but my eyes aren't what they used to be.

So it's not due to damage then?

If you look closely you will notice the pinion should have corresponding bevels as well.  It is to insure engagement, that way as the spool or pinion rotate it helps it to drop down and "engage".  If the portion of the spindle you have pictured were cut with straight 90's, and the pinion as well, then there would probably be a tendency for the pinion to skip or have issues dropping down onto the spindle when attempting to engage. - john

It's a lead in for the pinion to ease the drop in.      Rudy

I'm asking because most of my spools are 90 degrees, no shaved corners, but now I've seen a couple like in the photo. Thanks guys.

Would that cause a problem mixing and matching spools and pinions?

Both spools seem to work with the flat faced pinion.
