I have thirteen Lee molds,all I've had to do to several of mine is sand the top of the mold block with some 500 grit paper and light oil,knock a few burrs off the sprue plate or use my chamfering tool to lightly deburr the bottomof the pour hole.
I wash my molds and degrease them with mineral spirits before use and heat them on a hot play before the first cast. I lube the sprue plate and pins with synthetic 2 cycle motor oil a little goes a long way.
I smoked a couple of my first Lee mold but soon found out it wasn't necessary anymore. And as snuffy said the more you use them the better they work
