Are you sure you need #7? You don't say what type of sheetmetal screw you need. Anyway here are a couple places but I do not know if they sell retail or if they have minimum quantities. I don't know if these place are particularly good for the screws you need. You might be better off looking in your local yellow pages

In my area #7 screws are never used and must be special ordered if you want them.

What is it you are trying to do?

Maybe you can use small bolts instead? While bolts come in countless forms, sheet metal screws only need to deform the metal they go into, so we aren't so exacting about their size.
