The dust collector on the band saw should collect the major part of the sawdust but an air cleaner is always helpful.

There are several people who have posted projects in the past air cleaners they have made from box fans or better a squirrel cage blower from an old HVAC (home heater). The squirrel cage blower can often be gotten free from home heating businesses. That is what I have done and it does a great job and in my case also circulates the heat from my shop wood stove.
