The JDS is rated at 1250CFM.

CFM requirements, and dust port requirements, for the tools you listed are:

TS: 350 – 4”
Router: – 200-350 3-4”
Jointer: 350 4” (for up to 6” jointer)
Planer: 785 6” (for up to 20” planer)
Lathe: 400 5” (for small lathe)

So … one at a time … if you’re using large enough ports … you’ll have power to spare. The straighter and smoother your runs are, the safer you’ll be—particularly at 16’.

A good start on the math is here:

If you HAVE a few minutes, you CAN do the actual math, pretty easily, but … without ME doing it … I think you’ll be fine :-)
