That is your idle adjustment knob. You can turn it to raise/lower your idle RPM. You may have to force some lubricant down into it as they have a tendency to freeze up.

Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.

Try it ….. NOT! Like said, idle speed adjustment. Don't be raising that idle much.
