Really, anything over 20amp would be too high with them plug fuses. The house really needs to be updated with a new breaker box panel, as well as most, or all of the wiring, fixtures and receptacles. There is a fire waiting to happen. You cannot go by the size of the fuse at all, you must go by the size of the wire. Number 14 wire is good for 15 amps, number 12 is good for 20 amps, number 10 is good for 30 amps, etc. If you wish to have a circuit capable of safely carrying a certain amount of current, you should consult an electrician to see if what you've got will serve what you need and if not then having a new circuit installed.

Q: Is there a safe way to increase the current allowed if there is no amperage stamped on the fuse panel and all you have to go by is the old 35A fuse?

Does a double pole breaker double the amperage?

No. In North America a double pole breaker is used to obtain a voltage of 240 volts from the distribution panel. What ever the amperage rating stamped on the handle of the breaker is, that is the amperage that the breaker will trip at.

How does electric fuse work?

It is simply a piece of wire. It's thin dimensions, limits the amount of current that can be sent through it before it melts. If too much current passes through it, it will get hot. When it melts, it falls apart and breaks the circuit. The thicker the fuse wire, the more current it will take before melting and the rating will be stamped on it. For convenience, the fuse wire is normally contained inside a cartridge of some sort. Sometimes a glass tube with metal end caps, where you can see if the fuse wire is intact inside. On modern car fuses, the wire is displayed across the top of a piece of coloured plastic with metal blades for connectors. The current rating is stamped on the top and the color gives a ready indication of the Amperage rating.
