Do I have to use White F.R. needles on my White Rotary sewing machine?

My White Rotary is a model number FR 2716919, and I do not know if I have to use only the White F.R. needles, or if it is OK to use other needles? It is a 1913 sewing machine.

    Take the existing needles to a sewing machine repair shop and ask what needle system they are. Or ask on the Treadleon mail list http://lyris.quiltropolis.com/scripts/lyris.pl?ent... or the WeFixIt yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wefixit/ As I don't know this machine, I can only tell you that it may be possible to retime it for a needle that's currently in production if the FR needles are difficult to find.
