most any small engine or auto parts store should carry a plug stop. Basically its a teflon or plastic plug you screw into the spark plug hole, rotate the piston until it rests on the stop.
There may also be a special spanner wrench depending on your saw. If there is it may also be possible to use the same points but improvise the tool.

I was once instucted by John Deere to use an old piece of starter rope. Take out the spark plug and feed about a foot of so in. I just used a small piece if 1/4 inch cord. It work fine and was cheep.
