A dust collector will do the most good, probably, hooked up
to your planer and to your table saw. Those machines throw
a lot of chips all over the place, with the saw producing more
airborne dust and the planer just making a mess on the floor.

Contractor saws are trick to set up satisfactorily for dust collection,
but if you have a saw that supports good dust collection, having
a real dust collector hooked up to it is a nice thing and reduced
airborne shop dust considerably.

I’d say at the source dust collection is a better investment than
filtration, but a lot depends I suppose on your own style of
woodworking and the sort of messes you make.

I’m not a big router table user, but they can be very messy. I
usually do router stuff outdoors if possible since router dust
collection tends to be cumbersome and fiddly to set up.
