As WhyMe and CaptainKlutz stated, you can’t add outlets to that circuit. I was unaware there was a 20A cap when I originally replied. I think I would pull another 20A circuit or make a pigtail extension cord to plug the machines in. Having a code violation could be bad if there’s a fire or something even if it’s totally unrelated.
