Actually, a bandsaw would do the job you tried with ease, and more. If you
leave a "smidge" for the planer, you just need to leave the line. Fence and
feed works the same on one side straight; chalk, snap and follow starts you
out from rough.
When I use to live in my old house, which had fuses not a breaker, it would
blow them also. It only trips the breaker when it starts to bog down. If I
feed ridiculously slow it doesn't trip the breaker. But I risk burning the
crap out of the wood. I'm guessing a beefier saw will not bog down and
thus will not trip the breaker.?.
I thought about the bandsaw after I posted. I think your right. A nice
bandsaw should do the job nicely.
A beefier saw is going to require more amperage, though, which by itself
will blow the breaker. What strength breaker are you running, 15 amp? If so,
a slow blow might help, but running a 20 amp circuit might help more.
