Most things that you use that use 220 will not be ran at the same time. The exception that i can think of is a dust collector if you have a large enough one. So most of your 220 plugs can be on the same breaker as they will not be on at the same time.

i thought that too until my electrician strongly advised against it. mine are all run on individual circuits.

I run the 220v outlets only when I get the equipment and have it placed. that way I can put the outlet in exactly the right position in the ceiling or on the wall. most 220v equipment will not come with a chord, so I have the electrician run the outlet and install the chord and plug all at the same time.
