Instead grouping equipment for just for dust collection I think workflow should be the top priority .I would place two table saws end to end rather than opposing each other that way you could have a long outfeed table available as additional work space. I also like sheet goods storage close to the overhead door for easy off loading of heavy sheet goods and I like my table saws close enough to the sheet goods that I can tilt a full sheet out of storage and tilt it onto the edge of my table saw top. I also would like my jointer and planner to be close to my table saw so that the material coming off of them can go directly to the table saw for easy planning /jointing then ripping. I think the drill press and band saw should be at least 8ft apart. It’s always great to state ideal situations but sometimes the amount of equipment makes what someone plans impossible.
