I need to rip a piece of 12/4 hard maple. Unfortunately, I do not
have a band saw with enough power. I recently ran some 8/4 of same
with my Delta contractor's table saw. It struggled a bit and I had to
put wedges in the outfeed. Not sure if it can handle anything
Do you think I could run it through the table saw with about a 2.5"
cut, flip it and cut the rest? If so, what type of blade would you
I can always clean rough edges with joiner/planer.

You have the power, you just need the right blade.
1/2" wide, 3 tpi hook tooth, or hook-skip tooth. Don't force it.
If you really are short on power (what is your bandsaw anyway ?), go
for a 6tpi hook-skip tooth.
