You don't really "set up" a Spacedeck, you just assemble it. By that I mean that the Spacedeck does not require arcane tweaking by a specially trained technician to sound good like, say, dressing the tonearm cable in an LP-12. Follow the instructions in the dealer manual and you'll be fine. Many owners think the stock foam mat isn't very good and replace it; Boston Audio's graphite Mat 1 is perhaps the most popular replacement. You could experiment with using your Spacedeck without the base. Some think the turntable sounds better sitting directly on a good stand, without the stock wood base.
A Neuance shelf underneath the table(either with or without base) makes a huge improvement!
One thing to check is the pivot-to-spindle distance. I forget what the value should be(check the manual--something like 211mm), but if it is off, you need to remove the platter then loosen a bolt that allows you to swing the tonearm pod on an arc. Move the pod on the arc until the distance from pivot-to-spindle is exact, tighten the bolt, then put the platter on and then setup your cartridge.
The sliding metal donut adjusts anti-skate. I found it didn't work well, and didn't affect sonics much. Cheers,
