You’ve got to add at least one 220v outlet for the planer anyway and since you already have 50A breaker that should make it relatively easy to add. While you are at it I would add 2 220v outlets so that you can later add a dust collector. 2 outlets would make it more flexible where you put your 2 current 220v capable tools as well. And while the electrician is there, you might as well have him put in some extra 120v outlets too. If it fits the budget , add another breaker for the extra 120v outlets around your shop and have him use a 30amp breaker and the appropriate gauge wire and at least 20 amp receptacles. You can never have too many 120v outlets in a shop.
