An extra 220V circut will depend on a lot of variables. Where is the main panel located? Is there enough room in the panel to add another 220V circuit? What size, 20A, 30A, etc? The bigger the circuit the more it will cost in materials, breaker and wire increase in price with size. If the panel is close to where you want to place the outlet I would expect in the $150-$200 range for materials and labor. I would go bigger on the circuit if it were me. Meaning if the saw calls for 20A, install 30A. this will give you the flexability of using larger tools in the future. If that is not what you want to do have the electrician pull and extra cable for another larger outlet down the road and leave it in a box in the wall for later use.
