Need a thin furnace filter

For some reason my furnace does not fit standard 1 inch thick filters. I need one about 1/2 inch. I want one that is effective to keep dust out of the house.

I've looked everywhere and can't find one.

any suggestions??

ps - I already wrecked a $15 1 inch filter trying to cram it in there.
