Router, at times, planer-jointer although haven’t done much of that yet. The other machines do not cause enough noise to be dangerous in my estimation. Actually if I start something and it seems loud, I stop and put on the protectors. Noise damage is a function of many things, including how loud, duration, and frequency. And probably a bunch of other things like whether the sound varies in frequency, etc. Repetitive loud sound damage accumulates.

If in doubt, I stick on the ear protectors…....
