If anything at all doesn't seem safe, I wouldn't put your eye there at all.
another thing you could do would be to make an off axis solar filter. so you'd basically cover the filter with a piece of cardboard which has a circle cut into it over a part of the filter without the bubble. you'd be turning your 8.25 into like a 4 inch or something like that, but again, better safe than sorry when looking at the sun.
I'd probably start the process with amazon too. If it's a quality problem, amazon or the supplier might just do a replacement part, so it's not like your doing a return and a new order at the new price. I use to be an importer/exporter until I had a fight with my girlfriend, so I know someone should be able to get you a replacement filter
Good luck to you sir.
