A 2 hp motor on 240 v draws 12 amps, so your table saw is not 2 hp. Is it a Craftsman where they sell you ‘developed’ hp? A 1 hp draws about 8 amps on 240. I would have a sub panel installed with separate breakers for each motor, as long as you have a grounding conductor. In rush / start up current for a motor is about 3x running current.
