Yes you can have multiple 220 outlets, but if you are using multiple saws and start kicking your breaker, do not put a bigger breaker in to keep it from tripping you'll break up the protection inside of your wire, and then you'll have major problems. If it don't burn down. If you do start tripping the breaker you will need to run another circuit. Don't just "get used to resetting it." It is a very bad habit and will possibly wear your breaker out. -- HMM... not so sure about that. Maybe that's how they do it where nobody cares. It's against most electrical codes to put more than one 240V appliance on a single circuit, or even to create the possibility by adding receptacles. The simple answer would be to either add a circuit (within the limits of the panel and service) or to unplug one tool and plug the other in.

How many lights and outlets can be installed on one circuit?

Depends on if it is a 15 amp or 20 amp circuit. You can install no more than 12 outlets on a 20 amp circuit or 9 outlets on a 15 amp circuit. You can install no more than 1920 watts on a 20 amp lighting circuit or 1440 watts on a 15 amp lighting circuit. If it is a 20 amp circuit I would not install any more than 8 outlets and 4 lights. If it is a 15 amp circuit I would not install any more than 6 outlets and 3 lights. This only applies to living spaces like bedrooms, living rooms dining rooms, and not to kitchens, baths, utility rooms, garages, etc.

How many lights can be on a 15 amp circuit?

Depends on the wattage of each light and if ONLY lights will be on the circuit and no outlets. On a 15 amp circuit at 120 volts it is rated at 1800 watts. But the NEC restricts you to only a load of 80% of the circuit so that means you can only load the circuit to 1440 watts. Assuming you are installing 75 watt can lights you can install 19 can lights. Install 65 watt can lights and you can install up to 22 can lights. But if you installed fluorescent can lights pulling 14 watts each you can install 102 lights. Install 15 watt LED bulbs and you can install 96. You will have line voltage loss so be aware of that on any long run. The fact is that someone could come along and remove the fluorescent or LED bulbs and install regular bulbs. So my advice is to assume each light to be a 75 watt light and limit the circuit to no more than 19 lights.

You will need an electrician. Tim is probably right in that unless you are knowledgable, call an electrican. Saying that, if you are knowledgable, you must install a GFCI circuit outdoors.

A circuit that keeps blowing a fuse, is caused by a Short in that circuit, loose connections causing arching, overloaded circuit, or a fuse that is too small for the circuit load. Do not install a fuse bigger than the circuit was designed to handle. Someone may have install too small a fuse. Check fuse list and see if the proper fuse is installed.
