Calcium hydroxide and kH

Hey, all...

Does calcium hydroxide raise kH, and if so, how much do I need to add to 100
gallons of water to raise the kH 1 degree?  Also, is there any good reason
to raise kH but not GH?  I ask because I am looking to supplement calcium,
and I already have a bunch of calcium hydroxide I accidentally got at an
auction.  I've been using sodium bicarbonate to raise the kH of my really
soft Northwest water, but have been running into problems with low calcium
levels for my MTS and (I think) some of my swords.  Anyhow, any help, as
usual, is greatly appreciated.
