The easy: Replace the 50A breaker with a 20 A breaker and run 12ga wire to a new outlet.

The better: Install a 50A subpanel to feed multiple 110 and 220 outlets

No question on the sub-panel! Unless the OP is familiar with wiring it would be wise to hire a “sparky” on this one. He/she will be able to determine what size wire is coming from that 50a breaker which will determine the subpanel size. OP already knows about “load” and the fact rarely will 2 machines operate at the same time. EMT conduit is cheap!
