I purchased a used George which arrived late yesterday, and I had to leave for work right after I un-boxed him.  Naturally I'm anxious to set him up and play with him today. 


2 packages of Schmetz NM:100, Size 16 industrial needles were sent with George.  They have a round hub, but the needle isn't shaped like the Singer needles which APQS recommends, so I am hesitant to use them.  Hopefully I will be able to find the right kind of needles locally today, but If I am unsuccessful, then what are your thoughts on me using these Schmetz needles until the Singer needles arrive in the mail?


I imagine that I would have difficulty adjusting the tension if I use these needles, but maybe not since they were in the box. 


Thank you.
