Running multiple 240VAC outlets on a single circuit is not prohibited in any place I have ever done any wiring. If you are going to call in an inspector, you should check with him ahead of time to avoid problems. I have encountered some pretty strange requirements before. There is no engineering reason that I can think of to run multiple circuits to multiple machines if you aren’t going to use them at the same time. Even if you do, the worst that can happen is your breaker will open up after several seconds. My shop is wired for multiple 240VAC outlets on a single circuit and in 12 years or so, I have never had a problem. I do have my air compressor and dust collector on unique circuits because you never know when the compressor will cycle and a dust collector is always used with some other machine.
