Lots seems to be wrong with what you wrote.
It sounds like you are talking about 240v wiring because a 30 amp breaker can not be used on general purpose 120v wiring but it sounds like 120v wiring because you can't use two receptacles on a 240v dedicated circuit and you mention using power tools and other items which indicate a 120v circuit. Really confusing. Could you try again to explain what you are doing. What voltage is the air conditioner?
