Are both the dust collector and tablesaw 120V? If so and the dryer circuit is 4 wire, 2 hot, neutral and a ground you can split the circuit into two 20A 120V circuits with a shared neutral. The 30A breaker will need to be changed to a 2 pole 20A breaker or two single pole 20A breakers with a handle tie. Obviously the circuit will no longer be used for a dryer. If you are on the International Residential Code multiple outlets on a single circuit are not allowed if over 20A.
