I just acquired an uncapping knife. It gets hot enough to make water sizzle on it. Too hot, right? I noticed it has a small screw with a screwdriver slot in it is this where it can be set for the right temp. And how do I do it?

That little screw sets the temperature. Make very small adjustments till up get it where you want it.
If I remember right, clockwise makes it hotter.
