I am not an electrician, but in my workshop I went from a single 220V outlet to 3 of them on a single 40A line. That is because I am absolutely sure that there will never be more than one machine (table saw or bandsaw)+dust collector on at the same time and the circuit is sufficient for that.

That said, if I were you I would rather not use a plug adapter or doubler, but simply branch out (with proper size wires) and add an extra surface outlet on the wall for a more permanent connection. I posted on this before when I was doing my connections and I think there are some photos too.
