I need some tips on setting up my banjo.
Welcome to BanjoHangout. Which advice on what type of banjo are you seeking?
Watch the following videos by Warren Yates of Yates Banjos:
the use of a drum dial: youtube.com/watch?v=oTLAbg8zKDU&t=19s
how to set the bridge: youtube.com/watch?v=DWnmfCZo-4M
truss rod adjustment: youtube.com/watch?v=HB8RFsVIt4Y
I'm thinking that you need to give future posters some idea of the issue or issues you are having? Banjo not staying in tune? Buzzing when fretting? Not in tune up the neck (intonation problems)? Action too high (strings too high off the fretboard) or too low? How to set the tailpiece angle to get the best tone?
