I see no reason you couldn’t share. The cheapest thing would be to jumper a wire of the correct guage from the plug you currently have into a remodeler’s box. These are easy to attach to the sheet rock. You would have to remember that the sheetrock is all that supports the box and it WILL break if you pull too hard on the plug. you could attach the box to a joist with nails and it would be sturdier. If you buy components and make a wye you have to buy more parts. This could be done though. You can only run one saw at a time and it should be protected by a breaker of the correct size. what is the new saw??
