At one time I thought the 'green wire' ground
in an appliance, computer, ETC. must use mechanical contact for 'bonding' i.e. soldering was not allowed. Is this true?
Thanks...

Beats me. If you don't get a good reply here, you might want to try contacting UL & see what they have to say about it.

The NEC does not apply to the internal wiring in computers and appliances.
